On an ordinary day in 2006, Claudio decided he wanted to fly. After calling a number of flying clubs, he finally found one that would provide a demo lesson on the very same day. Suffice it to say that Claudio's life had suddenly changed. After attaining his Private Pilot license, he pursued Tailweel, Complex, High-Performance endorsements, Instrument rating, Commercial certificate, until finally becoming a CFI. His goal is to train safe, confident, and proficient pilots. He employs a systematic approach to teaching based on a solid understanding of aerodynamics, systems, and regulations, and fundamental stick-and-rudder skills.

While not flying, Claudio has been involved in a number of high-tech early stage companies as entrepreneur and executive. He holds a PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering.
