Hi there! I’m Elio, a software engineer currently working for Jimdo, who formerly worked at Reconnect, Automattic and Themify.
My journey on the Internet started on 2007, when I started using WordPress, the content management system that runs 33% of the web. On 2008, I started a design blog (that I closed a few years ago) called I Love Colors, that gained a lot of recognition due to its design. I wrote on Smashing Magazine, won contests, gave away icons and other stuff in Tutorial9, got interviewed in Noupe, wrote for a WP book and a bunch of other things.
I’ve been involved with WordPress for more than a decade, and during that time, I’ve:
- contributed to WP core
- published and contributed to plugins on WordPress.org
- co-founded wpargentina.org, the WordPress community in Argentina
- ran a WordPress meetup in my city
- spoke in eight WordCamps in five countries, among other events
- was an MC at the WordCamp US 2017
- had the honor to speak at the WordCamp Europe 2019 in Berlin
Whenever I’m not coding, I love traveling, hiking, and generally spend spend time in the countryside. My current hobby is photography, and you can see some of the photos I made here and also follow me on Instagram.
