I work as Sr Manager of UX (User Experience) Design at Cloudera. In the past few years I’ve managed small UX teams at Cloudera and Informatica and led user research for SW product teams (i.e., big data, data analytics, and data governance products). Earlier, I worked as research scientist in Human-Computer Interaction at Xerox PARC and XRCE (now Naver Labs).
I came to the USA as a Fulbright fellow for a PhD in Human-Computer Interaction at Virginia Tech and then Penn State, where I graduated. I ended up loving and living in this country. I periodically return to visit my family and hometown Alberobello in Italy. I live in the Bay Area, California, with my lovely wife Valeria, a talented Californian-Argentinian architect.
I enjoy outdoor activities such as biking and kayaking, international people, movies and books that make me think, and especially good food and wine with friends.
