Fond of electronics from an early age, with several accomplishments as a hobbyist, in the years of university I discovered the world of information technology and industry automation.
Although the university training includes a much broader spectrum of subjects, as required by the former degree courses in Engineering, these two disciplines became, from that moment on, the focus of my interests and my activities.
Born in 1958, married and father of two children, I lead a healthy and active life, and keep an unchanged enthusiasm and determination.
