Web Developer @ Magic (Bologna, Italy), with the task of developing websites and e-commerce platforms with WordPress, Drupal and Magento.

Over three years (for two of them I was the only developer) I learnt about how to build websites from graphical ideas, publishing them with WHM and cPanel, keeping them updated and optimizing them with SEO (thanks to Visual SEO Studio and Screaming Frog) and lots of useful tweaks.

Web Programmer and 3D modeler

BlackRaven - Bologna, Italy
-

BlackRaven was a small indie software house formed by a group of close friends with the same passion about videogames. We developed and published some apps for iOS devices as well as a few pc games.

My first role was web programmer, so I created and mantained the main web site in WordPress. Other than the site, I was in charge of creating databases connections for the apps we developed.
To cover for one of the vacancies in our team, I also learnt basic 3D modelling using programs like Milkshape and 3ds Max (my creations examples video).


Since my early years, I have always been passionate about technology, and curious about how things works.

During high school I discovered the programming world: first with basic HTML, then I expanded my IT background over the years until I was able to create full web sites, for me or who was in need.

From 2011 to 2015 I was part of an indie team based in Bologna, Italy (Black Raven), we developed small games and programs for Apple and PC. I was in charge of the design and the development of the website and of every methods of database connection of the apps. As a secondary role, I also worked as 3D modeller.
The years spent as part of this team enhanced my programming knowledge and made me learn the dynamics of working as part of a team. It is thanks to this experience that I have become the programmer that I am now.

In May 2015 I've got the chance to finally work in a web agency (Magic) where I was trained about how companies develop websites and e-commerce platforms. Over these three years, I was able to build upon and expand my knowledge of WordPress, as well as discovering Drupal and Magento.
