Emanuele Capparelli

(a random recollection of life events)

βœ“ I survived 34 years (and counting).

🀌 I was born in Rome, Italy.

🏠 but I moved to Germany, U.S.A., Russia, France, Austria, Thailand, Namibia for a while, and currently based in Portugal.

πŸ•΅οΈ I have good friends from every continent. But some of them don't trust me because I worked for Americans in Russia.

πŸ‘€ They say I don't have an accent (I do).

πŸ’» What I do

πŸ“° I develop software companies for a living, currently working on Tailor, pushing AI to automate your boring tasks, so you can spend time creating art (you're welcome).

πŸ§‘β€πŸš€ I studied Space Engineering, and worked to bring people to Mars and other distant places around the Sun.

πŸš€ I am not anymore, but I still watch rocket launch failure compilations from time to time.

πŸŽ“ I got an MBA and I am now getting a bachelor of Philosophy, because why not?

πŸ—ΊοΈ Travel Stories Adventures

🌍 I have visited 200+ Earth regions so far (check the cool map here).

πŸ”οΈ My friends know me for my absurd travel stories, like hiking a mountain in Kashmir under a hailstorm, while hallucinating due to malaria pills.

🀿 Or scuba diving in the Red Sea, only to get decompression sickness and drive a car into a sand dune in the Jordanian desert.

🐼 Or losing my passport in the middle of China and spending more than a month getting out of there.

🐲 Or climbing the side of the Chinese Great Wall with no equipment, Tomb Raider style.

🏜️ Or backpacking to Iran to sleep under the stars in the hottest desert in the world, the Dash-e-Lut.

🏍️ Or having a motorbike accident in the jungle of Vietnam, having to drive myself back to the hospital at night for 60 kms on a highway full of trucks, people and chicken.

🦍 Or visiting a warzone in Congo DRC to sight some majestic Grauer's gorillas and chimpanzees.

πŸ‘£ Unfortunately, this means I have a very bad carbon footprint.

πŸ€“ Stuff I like

🎞️ I track every movie I watched.

πŸ¦‡ I read tons of comic books (DC, Vertigo, Image, Dark Horse, but never Marvel, never).

πŸ›Έ And am trying to read every Hugo winner.

πŸŽ™οΈ I like to sing, and I write songs. Sometimes, I record them. (I published a couple of albums)

🎧 I also listen to other peoples' music.

πŸ•Œ I am obsessed with Orientalism and can talk about medieval Islam for an uncomfortable amount of time.
