Professional Journalist and Communication Consultant for the 3D Industry
I was born in Milan, Italy and moved to New York at age 14, which is where I received my higher education, all the way to my B.A from the State University of New York at Stony Brook. I moved back to Italy at age 26 and began working as an editor for a trade magazine in the videogame industry.
As the market shifted toward new business models I started working for YouTech, the first iPad native technology magazine in Italy, where I covered all consumer technologies and discovered the world of additive manufacturing. As it tried to make its first steps toward a consumer market, I became extremely fascinated by its incredible potential.
I then started to work as a freelance journalist and I collaborate with many of Italy's main generalist publications, including Corriere della Sera, Italy's first newspaper, covering science and technology, anywhere from sustainability to astrophysics. I became fascinated by technology watching Star Trek episodes in college. As 3D printing boomed I was swept away by this technology which I see as the ancestor of Star Trek's replicator. Since then many of my articles have revolved around the different applications of 3D printing. I started by own blog on 3D printing called IL REPLICATORE, which has now evolved into a full industry news website became a reference for the 3D printing industry in Italy.
Today I am senior writer for 3Dprintingindustry.com, a leading international blog on 3D printing news. I currently collaborate with several other websites and magazines, both in Italy and internationally, I work as a consultant for many startups and established companies in the 3D printing industry. I am a founding member of the Italian Digital Biomanufacturing Network (IDBN.org) and every day I find new, amazing, possibilities for this incredible set of technologies and people.
