Hi, I am Paolo, Computer Science Engineer, Photographer, Clarinetist, Startupper, Father, Believer, Passionate, Curious.
relevant things happened
Really early (I’m talking about 3rd year high school) I decided to spend my professional life on AI. I was in love with the book of Norvig-Russell and I was sure I’ll change the world. Later, few years later, I built a neural network to implement a cricket behaviour, on a robot cricket moving in a gray dusty lab (article). I was on the trail!
Then I changed my mind on what I was in love, less IA, more control systems. You can control anything, you can make everything out of code. And then I got a MSc in computer science engineer. So I stepped from the Student level, to the Graduate level. The next day I became Unemployed. Uhuh.
Then 2005, May I started working as an IT consultant (Accenture), between Milan and
Padua Venice. I missed the sun, so I quit that awesome job and I moved to the very south.
There, 2006, I had fun in marketing, sales, business plans (Engineering).
2007, I decided to turn myself to the amazing world of Data Analysis. I moved from South to North again. I had less fun in a real estate dep (Antonveneta), working on data analysis and financial plans.
2008, I met an awesome korean creature, and three months later I got married. I also started playing clarinet.
2009, I became for the first time dad. And I discovered I always was and be Protestant.
2010, We moved to Rome and since then my day job is something I enjoy: bank customer data analysis and product campaign/strategies plan.
I begun my path to be an enterpreneur: I had an Idea, I started a group of founders, Late night skyping, Failing slowly because too big idea/too big project to start. No MVP.
I also started my photographer journey, with a Nikon DSLR, here: Postmodernview on 500px
2011, I became for the second time dad. And the same day I bought and wrote the very first post of my new bloggin story, here at The Ugly Truth: READ my LEAN STRATEGY
2012, Exploring art in many forms, I started now with painting here: Art from ZERO to Hundred – “A story about a guy who didn’t know a fruck about drawing, colors, lines and brush”, but I’m planning to create some sculpture soon in the future, something with old material recycled from bins, some metal maybe.
Maker CALL: I resumed my electronic devices, and I bought online a little Arduino, to restart building THINGS, live things. Here the group Hopen
Design CALL: I’m reading, studying, weeping over so many interesting books teaching Design, UI, UX. Teaching how to make people HAPPY with a product. That’s the ultimate goal. As a reference look here: Bootstrapping Design, and also read my first post
And I bought in Camden Town a nice
real faked trumpet. It’s not me, it’s the trumpet that doesn’t work. I’m sure.
For now I’m really into a big project:CAP rapido
