Meet The Team: 5 Fun Facts About Leo!

Every so often, we feature one of our awesome Fluid team members. This week, meet Fluid’s Lead Developer, Leo!

Leo’s been at Fluid since the beginning, and built the app (on both Android and iPhone) in just ten weeks! We’ve fondly dubbed him the CPO of the company, Chief Pasta Officer, as he’s a proud Italian/American dual citizen whose love of food is infectious.

Leo took some time out of his busy schedule to sit down with us and talk about his Nutella obsession, his love of Italy, and crypto-currency. Check out his fun facts, below!


1. What’s your favorite drink?

During the day, I love coffee. I am a bit picky about it since the coffee in the US has a different flavor pattern than coffee from Italy. I make myself a cappuccino every morning and drink Illy coffee (pretty much exclusively) throughout the day. For the evening, Spritz or a Negroni Sbagliato, which is a Negroni but you substitute the Gin with Prosecco or Champagne similar to a Campari Spritz but a little stronger. Sbagliato means “made wrong” in Italian!

2. Who do you look up to/your biggest influencers?

Michele Ferrero, the late owner of Nutella. He died at 90 and considering Robert Atkins, inventor of the Atkins Diet died at 72, I think there is a hidden message there.

3. What’s a secret talent of yours?

I cook, a lot. I make some of the best Pasta Carbonara you will ever have. Carbonara is from Rome, and my Roman friends ask me to make it for them all the time – you can’t get a bigger compliment than that. I also used to be one of Italy’s fastest speed skaters as a kid and got third at the nationals. We aren’t talking about ice skating here – asphalt and before rollerblades were invented essentially, speed rollerskating.

4. Where are you from?

I was born and raised in Northern Italy – a little north of Milan, close to Lake Como. It’s honestly one of the most beautiful places in the world, and I have had the chance to travel quite a bit. Italy has so much variety in such a small area: beautiful mountains, amazing seaside, tons of art and culture, and it’s all packed in so closely. It’s also hyper-regional when it comes to food, so every town has its own specialties that they are proud of. Touring and eating in Italy are some of my passions.

5. What do you like to read?

I change my topics of interest every few years, I go through phases. It used to be a lot of philosophy, psychology, neuroplasticity, and nutrition, but now I’ve gotten into nerdier stuff like battery technology, renewables, and of course cryptocurrency and blockchain technology.

College Students Get Their Move On With Fluid Truck Share

College students move a whole lot — into and out of the dorm, into off-campus housing, and back home at the start of the summer. Fluid Truck Share offers a great way for students to save time and money as they transition to a new dorm, apartment, or shared house with their friends. Students can find the truck they need to get the job done with just a few clicks on the Fluid Truck Share app, starting as low as $5/hour. We take the stress out of truck rental so students can get back to the important stuff — hitting the books!

We’re so excited to feature Emma, a student at the University of Colorado, who rented a small box truck on Fluid for her recent move into her new apartment. Emma picked up the box truck super early in the morning to start her move, taking advantage of the 24/7 accessibility of the vehicle. With a little muscle help from her friends, Emma completed her move in one day, and saved hundreds of dollars by using Fluid.

“Renting a truck on Fluid couldn’t have been easier and saved me a ton of cash,” shared Emma, a student at the University of Colorado. “I downloaded the app and found the perfect truck just a couple of miles from where I live. I’ll definitely use Fluid Truck Share for my next move.”
