Stefano is currently a student studying BSc Business Computing at Bournemouth University in the United Kingdom. He has a significant interest in the technology world, and writes for Neowin.net in his spare time.
He was introduced to computers primarily by his father from a young age and has since then become more and more interested in them with each passing year. Stefano refers to the game Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force published back in 2000 as a spark for the events that led him up to technology news writing and studying computing to a further level.
While he is not assigned to a specific area of writing, Stefano often covers stories regarding Microsoft and the Windows Phone platform. Any story predicting WP7 to pass iPhone market share, will no doubt peak his interest.
