I'm IT consultant & project manager with 13 years of professional experience. I'm interested in all kinds of IT matter, but my major focus is on fast coding and agile methods. I also have skills in other fields like security auditions, mobile and web development.


When I was 15 I found myself having to decide which course to attend. In my city , all technical institutes proposed courses that I did not like and I found it not so interesting. At that age already I programmed in C and C++, and I looked out on the world of Linux. In my life I have always been self-taught perhaps by nature or perhaps because my father got the brilliant idea to put in front of my face a PC monitor when I was only 6 years old and thanks to a great curiosity , I wrote my first code at 11 years old with the help of a friend, developing a little game for PowerBBS in the form of plugin. Studying has never been a problem but I had no chance to do it at university. I do not consider myself less good than many other people. I just swapped the study with the experience. Being self-taught is not to be considered a handicap, but as an added value because the being self-taught is something that stays forever instead of simple notions and concepts. I could cite many known people who were self-taught but I think it is sufficient to cite only one: Leonardo Da Vinci.

On 2002 something really bad happened to me. It shaked all my life and I had to abandon my security studies. I was feeling lost and I felt the heavy need of making something useful.
On that years the web makes its first big steps forward to the future and I wanted to be a part of it.
I apologize in advance if there are no previews of some sites. Moreover sure I'm forgetting portals that I created which I can define meteors for the speed in which they are off.
Now, after more than ten years of web developing, I published more than 30 websites and worked on more than 50. When you browse the websites below, please consider I'm not a designer but just a developer ;)


In many years I developed a lot of stuff useful and useless and you can find here 0 public repositories of 0 total repositories.

All of the projects below are under open source licences. Many of them are really outdated and not so good, but this is my small contribute.
