Hire me

I was born in Rome in 1976. Since then, a lot of things happened...I have always been a sports enthusiast, since I was a little boy. Maybe it was because Italy won the World Cup in 1982 and Adriano Panatta gave us some satisfaction on international tennis courts, that I started playing soccer at 6 and tennis at 10. Hence, I immediately learned to be a team player but also to take care of myself (and by myself), when necessary. Concentration and stamina were since then, my best qualities. At 13, I didn't know exactly what I wanted to be, (basically, at that time I just wanted to play sports), so I chose the "Scientific High School". From my point of view it was the only lyceum that could assure me an adequate preparation for the future. At 15 I started working because, I decided to pay directly the school fees and my books. I worked as... whatever: bartender, waiter, clerk at call centers, etc. After the secondary school, I decided to go to Dublin for a while, in order to learn the English language as well as I possibly could. I don't know if I succeeded with that but, you know what... I discovered the beauty of Ireland and its inhabitants. There, I developed a keen interest for marketing, corporate communication and the Internet world. Back to Italy, I decided to attend a University course in Communication Sciences. After some years, with the aim of enriching my professional skills , I decided to take the second Degree in Economics. This was also due to a bet. My friends did not believe that I could study and work at the same time. I accepted the challenge and I did it: I worked during the day and I studied at (late) night, for five long years. Eventually, I got a pizza paid by them. Ancient Romans would say "Nihil Difficile Volenti", nothing is difficult to the one who really wants something. I couldn't agree more. After the studies, I can remember only success stories at work: first as Media Planner and then as Marketing Manager within multinational companies with international workplace enviroments.Today I am happily married and I have many dreams, not yet realized. One of those is to work in the United States of America. That's all folks! All the rest is happening now...

PS: by the way, I'm skilled at using Photoshop... I removed my wife from my left side in the photo you see here :-). I love her so much but it was needed in this occasion! Cheers!
