TLDR: I’m a software developer with a special interest in cybersecurity, internet infrastructure, distributed systems and all things related to “tech” startups.

I’ve worked as a consultant on many projects for companies such as jeKnowledge, iNovmapping, Whitesmith.co, Cryptosphere Systems and RINO.

For a brief period during the last decade, I spent my days playing with the security and privacy aspects of “Internet of Things” devices. More recently, I turned my attention (again) to software development and have been digging deeper into Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, blockchain technology and distributed systems.

In this blog, I mainly write about stuff that I find interesting, without following a specific topic. I also publish small software tools, that I build to experiment new things, and my side-projects.

Occasionally, I also share external contents that, I think, are worth “the reader’s time”.

For a more active feed on that matter, you can follow me on mastodon or Nostr, where I regularly publish links to interesting articles related to the state of the tech world and security.
