Hi there 👋 I’m Nicola

I’m an Android Engineer an OpenSource Lover and a Runner.


I’m working in the React Native core team as an Android Engineer, building one of the most popular cross-platform mobile framework, used by billions of users worldwide. My main focus it to provide top-notch developer tools & libraries to support the React Native ecosystem. I’m fully committed to deliver the best quality software and to foster a healthy community around React Native.

Previously, I spent some time building Android Infrastructure at Spotify in Stockholm, Sweden 🇸🇪 and at Yelp in Hamburg, Germany 🇩🇪.

Community, OSS & Public Speaking

I love to build meaningful communities around me, either online or in real life.

Since 2020, I’m a member of the GDE (Google Developer Expert) program in the Kotlin category. I enjoy connecting developers around me and I had the opportunity to build and support the following communities:

I have a serious thing for Open Source Software (OSS) 🐧. Checkout my Github profile to see my projects and get in touch if you wish to collaborate or get some mentoring on how to start with OSS.

I also really enjoy public speaking and sharing my experiences. You can checkout some of my slides and videos in the talks page. Are you looking for speakers? I’m happy to travel and come to your meetup/conference! Just send me a mail.


Make sure you check out my own podcast: The Developers’ Bakery 🥐. A place for OSS developers to showcase their projects. You can find it on


In my free time, I love to run 🏃‍♂️. I had the pleasure to run the Pisa Marathon in 2019, 2021 and the London Marathon in 2021. If you want to follow my run journeys, make sure to don’t miss my Instagram or Strava profile.
