By day I'm a professional software developer specialising in web applications and scratch built content management systems. I love thinkering and hacking; writing software with purpose is one the things that get's me up for work in the morning.
Outside of work I take photographs, play computer games and write open source code.
I graduated from Dublin City University in 2009. I left DCU with an honours B.Sc in Multimedia, specialising in programming and video production. I also received an honours Uaneen certificate for extra-curricular activity.
I'm also interested in writing, film and the performing arts. I've had poetry published twice and have written & directed a short film and a full length play.
I co-founded and was first secretary and then chair of the DCU Art Society. In 2008 I was elected equality officer to the DCU Students' Union.
I was born in Dublin and my family have lived in the Irish midlands for the past 15 years. My unusual surname is Italian, my grandfather immigrated to Ireland after the second World War. I currently live in Dublin.
I'm a keen traveller and adventurer. When I was 18 I spent 9 weeks crossing Europe. During the trip I managed to visit 19 different countries.
I try to keep in shape in the warmer months and in October 2010 I ran the Dublin Marathon in a time of 4 hours 59 minutes.
