Background

About Daniele

I am an Italian & American citizen, computer geek and alumnus of the University of Toronto class of 2009. I majored in East Asian Studies and went on to study Japanese at Keio University and Korean at Seoul National University upon graduation. Despite my humanities background, I’ve always had an ardent passion for computing.

I started working for Funnelback, an enterprise search technology based in London, in April 2013, where I worked as sys-admin and support engineer. I then went to Tokyo to work as a full-stack Ruby on Rails developer. I am currently in Seoul working on a few startups.

I am well versed in both Object-Oriented as well as Functional programming principles. I love spending my time playing guitar, drawing, solving difficult problems and writing clean, elegant code
