About me

Hello there! (cit.)

I’m a Senior Software Developer with a knack for all things Python.

A while back I got myself a fancy degree in corporate criminal liability law, but I’ve been programming since I was 13 and I coded my way through Law School.

After graduation (summa cum laude!), I landed a job at a law firm, where I became obsessed with automating anything and everything that I could get my hands on. My programming passion consumed most of my waking hours until I was able to jump onto a legal tech project for a year. That experience got me hired as a research associate in legal informatics at the University of Bologna, where I worked with a team of computer scientists and lawyers.

We tackled a variety of projects, from legal document parsing to legal document generation. I was able to blend my programming skills and legal knowledge to create some pretty cool stuff for the Supreme Court, Constitutional Court and other high institutions. Of course, while I was at it, I learned to code smart contracts in Solidity because the blockchain hype was high and the legal tech world was shaking.

On the side, I co-founded and led the charge as the lead developer of a legal tech startup during this time (until we hit a government stoppage – long story). Anyhow, my hard work paid off, and I landed a fancy-pants Marie-Curie PhD scholarship in legal informatics (focusing on Blockchain/DLT and Governance), which took me to the beautiful city of Vienna.

Though I enjoyed my time in Academia (/s), I decided to jump back into the tech industry. So, I made the leap to dive fully into the field. In 2022, I hopped over to the eHealth sector, where I’m currently working as a Senior Python Developer.

Nowadays, I’m putting my knowledge and expertise to work in healthcare data management, specifically with FHIR. It’s been a wild ride, but I wouldn’t want to do anything else. Unless you pay me better, of course.
