About Me

Hello! I’m Alessandro Longoni.
A relationship builder and digital enthusiast involved into the most innovative areas in the digital world: a pioneer in digital wallet solutions and mobile advertising in both local (IT) and global (UK) teams.

I connect easily with people who talk of new technologies, relationships, imagine how the world is changing and keep challenging the status quo. 

Why this website? To use it as a platform for experiments, to share the best pictures I took, personal thoughts on life, business and to connect with people.

Something uncommon I did

In 2017 I realised the dream of consulting, learning and travelling full time, living as a digital nomad and connecting with the community.

IN 2017:
  • Rebalanced personal priorities and purpose
  • Travelled on a budget in 8 countries for 7 months
  • Consulted remotely with Wikistrats (crowdsource consultancy)
  • Acted as CCO for a San Francisco tech ID startup
  • Sold family business and managed family's investments
  • Learned basic web development (WordPress)
  • Tested drone photography and video editing
  • Explored opportunities in cryptocurrencies
  • Improved Spanish language
Per aspera ad astra

This page includes some of the pictures I took during my travels and connects them with travel stories, experiences, blog posts or just maps.
