As you may know, my main occupation is the design of audio transducers and complete loudspeaker systems, from hi-fi to car audio and professional applications.
Having a strong passion in sound reproduction since childhood, I started designing loudspeakers since 1990; working as technical reviewer for Hifi magazines very early, I had the chance to test many hi-fi devices, and to develop a deep listening sensibility. Over the years I have published several technical articles and projects of loudspeaker systems for DIY enthusiast.
I've been working in Elettromedia R&D department since 2001 as transducer designer and product manager, where I developed a deep knowledge and everyday experience with modeling software such as Femm, Loudsoft Finemotor/Finecone, Autocad 2D, Solidworks, and measurement instruments such as Klippel Distortion Analyzer and Scanning vibrometer, Audiomatica Clio, MLSSA.
Over the years I focused my attention on projects planning and management, problem solving and time to market strategies; daily relationship with overseas supplier and the design of new LaVoce Italiana China-based production facility gave me a deep insight on far-east production issues and communication abilities. I am currently in charge of technical trainings for customers and distributors, in Europe and North America.
From 1999 to present, I have been involved in music production, studio and live recording, acquiring a very good experience in analogue and digital recording, music production instruments, mixing technique, and optimization of studio monitoring systems. I've attended many recording workshops and I have recently founded my own recording studio, where I produce and record local musicians.
