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 for 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 on 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 to work with industry leaders companies such as Quark, Adobe, MuleSoft, and Salesforce.

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 were 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 decided to fund his own, Lanica, a state-of-art native cross-platform mobile gaming solution, for JavaScript developers.

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