I’m currently employed in Zurich in the StreetView Support team at Google Switzerland.
I’m a Linux and network enthusiast.
I started using Linux as my main OS in 2008 and I’m still doing it. Currently writing this page from a Manjaro installation. I have to admit though that Windows improved a lot during the years and Windows 10 is very good OS.
For several years I ran a small hosting company.
After some time of hosting my own websites and realizing that I could have been able to offer the same service to other people, I decided to start doing it in 2013. I stopped in 2019.
During the years, I used servers in Italy, Canada and Germany. I still own some of these servers and I use them for development and personal projects.
I started it as an hobby when I was 14-15 years old. Learned basic syntax with some simple C programming and then quickly moved to web development because it was more rewarding.
Here are some of my active projects:
- MyPingBot: a Telegram bot to check servers for connectivity. You can use it here: t.me/MyPingBot
- ppshell: a Perl script to issue commands through ssh on several machines.
You can find more code on my GitHub profile.
Currently I hold the following security certifications:
- OSCP - Offensive Security Certified Professional
- OSCE - Offensive Security Certified Expert
- OSWE - Offensive Security Web Expert
- OSEP - Offensive Security Experienced Penetration Tester
I was looking for a career switch in security, but ended up doing something different in a very good company so for now the switch is on hold. Have a look at my GitHub for some exploits.
As many others, I decided to collect some useful stuffs in a personal website, mostly for quick reference:
I hate graphics. I can’t use efficiently any popular image editing software, need Google and time for even small modifications.
And as you can probably tell from this website, I don’t have a good taste for colors either.
Is this why I like command line?
