Biography

Massimo is a scientist envisioning science fiction. He spent years at CERN and at the Lawrence Berkeley Lab, then had leading positions with Apple Inc. and the World Economic Forum. He is also Partner in a new startup in Geneva for smartphones applications, TAKEALL SA, and co-founder of an IT service and consulting company in Big Data Analytics: Squares on Blue.

Massimo lives in France and crosses the border with Switzerland daily and multiple times, but no, he's not a smuggler.

Ah, as golf player, Massimo played courses in all those countries too. With mixed results...

Smashwords Interview

Massimo Marino interviewed by Judy Goodwin
Massimo Marino is a scientist and has been writing since he was young.

What drew you to writing? What was the first thing you ever wrote?
I wrote since I’ve been able to hold a pencil in my toddler’s hands. I created stories in my mind, and I wanted to remember them and read them later. My father and older brother received sci-fi magazines and at first I wasn’t allowed to read because I was too young, but I liked the cover pictures, so I invented stories based on those images.The first story I wrote is a bit lost in the fog of old memories but it had to do with a kid who transformed into a dolphin when looking at the full moon seen from a crack on the vault of a seaside cavern.
