Founder at Atmosoar.io - experienced freelance writer
Aviation and Aerospace | Shanghai City, China, CN
As a journalist, I covered aerospace, technology and business from Asia for almost a decade. As a certified glider pilot and seaplane student pilot, I have years of flight experience. Last year, I channelled all this into Atmosoar.io, a weather-based route optimisation software to keep drones out of trouble and extend their range. In other words, we serve high spatial resolution weather data to drone operators and mission planning softwares and we compute the best route for any given drone mission profile.
In my career as a freelance journalist, I've written for The New York Times, The Economist, Wired, Time Magazine, and Monocle, between others. For a selection of my works, please visit http://muckrack.com/micheletravierso - I'm particulalry interested in the future of aviation, from the small (drones) to the big (airliners) and everything in between (general and recreational aviation). As such, I welcome speaking opportunities, panel moderation and/or on-stage interviewing at conferences.
With photographer Daniele Mattioli, I co-founded Collettivo.cc, a content marketing and copywriting agency. At Collettivo.cc we use the finest journalism and photojournalism storytelling techniques to craft stories for international corporate clients and their in-house publications.

Originally from Milan, Italy, I lived in Paris, Hong Kong, San Francisco and Shanghai. I'm fluent in Italian, English, and French, as well as having a conversational level of Spanish and Mandarin.
