About me 👨🏻‍💻

I’m a generalist, a builder, and a compulsive learner.

Lately, my strongest focus has been on meta-learning, our future in a world of borderless nations, and on how algorithms can both represent and impact reality.

In the past, I founded Uniwhere, a startup that uses data and predictive models to help students achieve more. It grew to 600,000+ users worldwide and has been included among the top 100 startups in Berlin. Our team also spun off the Revelop project, a smart email client for Ivy League students, used by people at Harvard, Columbia, Yale, Penn. The company raised $880,000 from investors in 5 different countries — among them, ex-Facebook execs, IPO’ed founders, and professional VC funds.

Through my work at Uniwhere, I’ve been featured in several media outlets, from SkyNews24 to HuffPost. I’ve also spoken at multiple conferences – among them: Google DevFest Berlin, Droidcon APAC, APS Summit.

In 2019, one of my talks was showcased by Google as one of their top 40 tech talks of the year worldwide. In 2016, I was awarded Italian of the Year by the Italian Embassy in Germany.

During my college years, I founded the biggest student-led theatre company in Italy.
