About Me

Technical Director at GEAR.it s.r.l. 

Through the years, Dario has acquired clear knowledge and expertise in educational methods to spread science using software simulations and interactive content.

Immediately after graduating in physics in 1998, he began his career as an independent consultant focusing on live data recording and simulation applied to quality control of industrial and productive processes, working with well-known multinational companies.

In 2003, as a shareholder and technical director, he established the company GEAR.it Srl, whose aim is to develop mobile software on PDAs.

In 2004, as CTO of Goware Srl, he was in charge of the Italian geographical partnership for PalmSource Inc. The assignment ended one year later when Access Inc. acquired PalmSource.

In 2012, he managed the development of a totally new rendering engine for PDF formats, mainly targeted at mobile Operating Systems: RadaeePDF SDK development started together with the newly established Radaee Studio located in China.

Currently, Dario remains TD at GEAR.it and Product Manager at RadaeePDF.
