I was born in the town of Mt Gambier in South Australia. It is famous for the Blue Lake which supplies the town water in an extinct volcano. Apart from that, the rest of my life was pretty normal - a small Australian country town raised within an Italian subculture. I now live on Brisbane in the sunny state of Queensland in Australia.
Currently, I enjoy a range of stuff:
- Raising my boy Jerson
- Looking after my Cats
- Landscaping and Gardening
- Football (the world game) - Azzurri, Socceroos, Man Utd, Inter Milan, Qld Roar
I was fascinated by Marilyn Monroe as a young adult. As I am now older, perhaps wiser, I enjoy Italian Pop artists (eg Laura Pausini and Giorgia) and my old 80’s pop songs.
I am Founder and Principal of Semantic Identity involved in consultancy for new innovative ICT technologies and strategies.
See my LinkedIn Profile for a complete professional history.
I am also a Visiting Professor at The University of Hong Kong and Adjunct Professor at the Queensland University of Technology
I am Convenor and the original creator of the Open Digital Rights Language (ODRL) which has been adopted by the Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) as an international standard for rights expressions in the mobile sector. ODRL is also used in other sectors like News, Education, Libraries, and Social Networks. ODRL is now a W3C Community Group.
