About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To conquer the world, obviously ;-)

ABOUT ME

I'm curious, shy, sensitive, non-conforming, lazy, sharp, independent, passionate, indiscriminate, open minded, chaotic, intelligent, questioning, rebellious, honest, and well... a lot of other things :)

My journey started in the italian mountains. There, I grew up in a cottage in the woods from which you need a good 30 minutes walk to even get to a road reachable by car.

I've always been a bit of a dreamer. Walking up the mountain after school my mind would be far away, wondering about the rest of the world, or about how I thought it was. We had goats. And a big garden where we grew our vegetables. Our mule is still happily wandering about.

From there, driven by curiosity, and following tortuous paths I ended up in lively Berlin where I'm now working as an an AI scientist for a big conglomerate. So well on my way to conquering the world...

PHILOSOPHY

"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those tho matter don't mind!"

Interests

I really like trying to understand how the world works (also called science).

I like to cast spells on computers to make them do what I want (also called programming).

Some things I love: photography, anthropology, maths, snowboarding/skiing, computer science, technology, psychology, nature, board games, cryptocurrencies, chaos theory, politics, outdoor sports, sortition, swing dancing, LessWrong, acrobatics, cognitive biases, books, the tv series Firefly, Ultimate Frisbee, optical illusions.

Teach, Learn, Share

I like to teach programming, maths, logic and how to think critically

I like to learn to see the world from different perspectives, and to learn facts about the world that change my predictions on how it behaves
