I've started my career in 1999 developing a strong technical background in IT security and I had the chance to support all the major Italian TLC carriers in the development of their security infrastructures and policies.


During my career, I held different IT management roles in enterprises-grade companies and I have achieved a significant experience in architecting and managing complex IT projects, including data center consolidation through virtualization technologies, organization-wide security assessments and private and hybrid cloud projects.


In 2005, I've expanded my area of interest, by getting involved in marketing and advertising activities connected to IT innovation projects under my responsibility.


From 11+ years I work as independent industry analyst and consultant for many organizations that operate all over the world, including Fortune 1000 and Global 2000 companies. 

For my customers I've directed several international projects, from infrastructure assessment to product and partners selection, supporting them in the transformation process from traditional IT to IT as a Service.
