About Pino


My Story

My name is Giuseppe “Pino” De Francesco, and I was born in Casagiove (Italy) on the 17 of November 1959. I have always been a freethinker since I learnt how to put together a thought, always second-guessing everybody, starting with myself.

My motto is that the only offensive “F” word is “Faith”: I believe that nothing shall ever be accepted by faith, everything shall always be hard-proven and double checked. There are minimal exceptions to this rule, and you will learn those by familiarising yourself with my work.

I currently live in Ireland with my wife Marinella and our youngest daughter, Himeko.

I am a Solutions Architect by trade, and a philosopher by nature. I run a game studio with my family, DFT Games, writing games as a side business.


I’ve spent most of my life doing two things: working in software and being socially active in civil and human rights fights.
