I was born in Italy, near Torino. Came to Switzerland in 1967, and studied electronics at the engineer school in Geneva.

Now working in the Systems Engineering, data acquisition and Telecommunications with the Federal Office of Meteorology and Climatology (MeteoSwiss) as responsible for the national monitoring center of the meteorological networks (CSNat).

My hobbies are radio (HF-VHF-UHF, DX, mobile operation, digital modes and APRS, satellites communications, building equipments...) and photography, computers, meteorology , modern-languages ...

I'm also active in politics (Parti Chretien Social) and human rights (Amnesty International & Unesco).
