Hobbies & Interests

Most of my hobbies and interestes are related to my professional activities, I\ve always been interested in electronics, computer programming and photography since i was a child. Growing up I had the opportunity of being in contact with professional photographer raising my interest in the field.

I practiced sports since my childhood, my first one was Basket, fora couple of years. Living in a seaside town (Porto Torres) I have been attracted by water sports, with particular interest for Kayak experimenting and practicing different variants (sea kayak, river kayak and team sports like polo kayak) for almost 7 years.

Mechanics and cars in general is another field where I always have been interested in, merging my interest for combustion engines with electronics, learning ECUs logics, creating ad-hoc ECU maps and studying it's behaviour once applied to the car.
