Name: Giorgio Calderolla

Alter ego/Nickname: Gio (Joe?), Giorgio Calderoni, Giorgio Maccheroni, Giorgio Lasagne, Giorgio (insert italian food or car make here)

Hometown: Conegliano, Italy (sometimes referred to as “Coney Island” by the locals)

Role(s) at Expensify: Frontend developer, other things developer, prettifier, speedifier, streamlinizer. Being confused and hesitating for a second when someone tries to high five me, and then saying ‘ouch’. 

Expensify Start Date: I don’t know! It’s all a blur. Somewhere between August ’11 and February ’12.

What is/has been your favorite project to participate on at Expensify?

I enjoy working on the little UI things. And the big UI things.

Life outside of Expensify?

Mostly app-making. Occasionally, city-exploring.

How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

Oh shut up.

Favorite Beverage

I think I’m a machine that transforms coffee into code. Not sure how it works. But I can tell you for sure that when the coffee drinking stops, the code writing and other associated activities stop as well. It’s weird. So to answer your question, my favorite beverage is coffee.

If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

Yes. A ‘craaaack thump’ sound.

Favorite flower?

Spaghetti Trees

What’s your present state of mind?
