I was born in Italy. I grew up in the countryside of Tuscany, near Florence and I was very lucky for that.
In the late 90s I had an epiphany when I met a guy that initiated me at the beauty of Internet. I joined Dada, at the time probably the coolest internet Italian start-up, where I took care of many things but most importantly of the international development.
That brought me in NY in a rainy day of late November 2004 when I started Dada Entertainment out of a Starbucks.
I am today dreamily married to @giulia_rattazzi, a father of two, and still live in NYC, where you can find me occasionally running in the very early AM on the Hudson River.
Ah, in the meanwhile I left Dada to join RealNetworks as President of the Mobile Entertainment Division.
