BRUNO FONZI

CODAME ART+TECH Commodore and co-founder.

Technologist and Creative Leader, entrepreneur and supporter of the arts. Bruno started CODAME in 2010 in San Francisco to fulfill his passion of exploring the intersection of art and technology. CODAME has been an opportunity to support, cultivate art, innovation and bring people together from different backgrounds and skillsets: Artists, Designers, Developers and Engineers to explore the future by using an artistic mindset in a playful, experimental way.

Bruno sold his first software application to a school when he was 15 years old together with his first computer (TI 99/a) as part of a bundle and to make enough money to live and study a year in high school in the United States. This experience had thereafter a great positive impact in his personal life and career.

As part of his final BSc Computer Science academic thesis at the London Metropolitan University, he built a photo manipulation software application. This is before Abobe had photoshop. A project that enabled him to combine his passion for software, photography, art and design early in his career and lead him working with industry leaders companies, in the publishing media world, such as Quark and Adobe.

He then worked as a consultant building an Artificial Intelligent system for Siemens, Telecom Italia, and the European Space Agency(ESA). Satellites, robots and space shuttles was his first job, it was a great start! After getting his Master in Business and Technology at UNSW Sydney, Australia, eventually landed in Silicon Valley, worked for a start-up and and decided to fund his own, Lanica, a state-of-art native cross-platform mobile gaming solution, for JavaScript developers, CODAME is still his favorite stARTup!

Now working at Salesforce as a Director of Engineering and continues bringing CODAME spirit, experiences, and inspiration back to work.
