Something about me

I was born in Guarujà (Brazil) in 1983 but soon moved to Italy; I have lived in Milan, Monza, Modena and I've been living in lucca for 9 years now.

In "real life", I obtained a degree in General Physics in Pisa with a work on the characterization of silicon photomultipliers.

Computers have always been my passion; I first installed linux 7 years ago and I started using Ubuntu since Warty Warthog. After using Debian Sid for a year during Edgy/Feisty release, I now switched back to Gutsy. I think I have reached a quite profound knowledge of linux and its tools and sometimes I write some little bash scripts that are only useful to me, in all likelihood. Smile :)

Contribution to the Community

I'm an ubuntero and member of the Italian Team.

My main occupation in the Ubuntu Community is giving support on the #ubuntu-it IRC channel (since 2005); I joined that channel first when I installed Warty and I've almost always been there since then. I have become an operator on #ubuntu-it on late 2006 (if I remember correctly). In these days we are defining the new structure of #ubuntu-it-* channels and their administration and two other ops and I are leading this process. The italian review "Dietro le quinte", inspired from BehindUbuntu, asked me for an interview that will be ready in a few days.

Years ago I made some translations for the Italian wiki, but as of now I think they are obsoleted... Smile :) I would like to contribute to translations in the near future, probably focusing on FCM.

I'm an Ubuntu member since November, 29th 2007

Gabriele plays a very important role in the Italian IRC channels, spending a lot of time supporting users. He has played an important role in the recent IRC team's reorganization (in fact he's one of it's administrators Wink ;) ), too, and he definitely does a very good work for the whole community!
