You've reached the personal web site of Marcello Brivio, 30 y.o. web enthusiast from Italy. These pages are my excuse to have bought a domain with my name without having nothing important to do with it (except indulging my ego).
I live near the city of Milan and I'm currently working for MTV Italy as a Digital Project Manager in the amazing team dedicated to MTV.it.
In 2004 I took a bachelor's degree in Communication at the University of Bergamo, followed two years later by a master's degree in Multimedia Publishing. During this last period, I collaborated to the planning and the design of PartecipaTrezzo.it, an e-democracy platform (one of the first ever made in my country).
In addition to these web-related activities, my other interests are:
- Sport: I am a passionate runner and I obtained some interesting results on medium distances like 10K and Half Marathon. Now, after an ankle overuse, I re-discovered the beauty of cycling and I'm grinding miles of asphalt with my road bike here in the hilly Brianza. You can follow all my workouts on Dailymile. I am also a football fan, but actually I'm much better as a narrator than as a player... I am the self-proclamed unofficial blogger, photographer, video-operator and first supporter of my town's team, A.S. Verderio.
- Photography: since I first met iPhoto in late 2006, I have understood the beauty of taking photographs and keeping them well organized. I always try to keep a photocamera with me, even when I'm going around with my bike: you just have to add a small vintage touch and here's what I call "Il Grande Ciclismo". Sometimes I think I'm becoming a good photographer... Don't believe it? Then you should watch my best shots on Flickr (what an amazing web site!).
- Music: I like to play the guitar. My axe is an original Fender Stratocaster made in USA, bought in 2001; I customized it with an AlecB bridge, a set of Schaller locking tuners and a GraphTech self-lubricating nut. Sometimes I like to record my musical ideas with my Mac, using GarageBand or Reason: I also have an USB keyboard to do this, but I'm quite bad in playing it...
