My self-summary
" 9/11 was pretty much the 9/11 of the falafel market"

I am originally from Napoli in Italy, but spent part of my childhood in northern France. For the last 5 years I have been living in California (near San Francisco) and I loved it.

I have been living in Sydney for two years now and I am loving this city.
What I’m doing with my life
After obtaining a PhD in Economics I've moved to Sydney to start a new chapter of my life. I am very excited about Sydney and Australia in general.
I’m really good at
Making Lists
Table Tennis
Sleeping anywhere
Free Kicks
Table hockey
Differentiating under the integral sign
Observing people (not in a creepy way)
Making movie and TV references
Remembering useless details

To be fair, here are also some things I am not good at:

Smiling in pictures
Waiting in line
Waiting in general
Solving non-linear differential equations
Driving (although people tell me that if you can drive in Napoli, then you can pretty much drive everywhere...)
Writing this profile page

I spend a lot of time thinking about
economics; politics; incentives; tradeoffs; how weird life is; what my friends in different places in the world are doing; Soccer and NBA
On a typical Friday night I am
Not much of a clubbing guy. I'd rather eat dinner out at nice and fancy place (kind of a foodie), watch a movie at home or talk with friends about life until 3 am while drinking wine (or guinness).
You should message me if
don't do it; I am serious, just don't
