Massimiliano "Max" Stucchi joined the Internet Society in 2019 as Technical Advisor for the European region. His previous experiences are as a trainer and IPv6 Programme Manager at the RIPE NCC, and before that he was the founder and technical director of a small Internet Service Provider and Wireless Internet Service Provider in Northern Italy.
Max is a long time Unix fellow, with a specific love for FreeBSD and OpenBSD, which he's been using for around 20 years now. His interest also cover BGP, Routing Security, DNS and of course, IPv6. If possible, he tries to contribute to the development of these technologies by participating in the IETF.
In his past, Max used to be an official football referee for the Italian Football Federation, but he quit when he moved to the Netherlands for work. Now, when he's not in front of a keyboard, you can find him trying to get back in shape by running or mountain biking in the woods around his house.
Max speaks Italian, English, French, and is trying to improve his German. He is based near Zurich, Switzerland.
