Giorgio Natili is an Adobe Community Expert and W3C member. He heads his own company, GNStudio, which operated in the web development field for the past six years. His field of expertise focuses on Adobe Flash, Fireworks, Dreamweaver, ColdFusion, Flash Media Server, and Flex, and their integration—as well as HTML and Flash accessibility. More recently his interests have broadened to include developing mobile applications and e-learning tools. He strongly believes in the need to spread new web technologies by evangelizing in the Italian developer communities. As a result, he has been an active member of the Igenium community (Macromedia Users Group), taking part as an invited speaker in the 2003, 2004, and 2005 webb.it events. In 2005 and 2006 he participated in SMAU in Milan, and he spoke at the Adobe MAX conferences in 2006 and 2007.

In 2003 Giorgio received the Sito Protagonista award from Macromedia Italy for the website alessandracellini.com. He developed the online version of the TV game show "Quiz Show" for Einstein Multimedia, subsequently published on the portal libero.it. He also implementated an RIA for visualizing Italian soccer championship results in real time for the principal Italian media group, Gruppo Espresso. In 2005 he founded the Flash community Actionscript.it, where he is currently the user group manager. In 2007 he developed Intelligere SCS, a web-based synchronous collaboration system developed entirely in Flex, and released it under an open-source license. His passion for community work continues with the founding of Flexdevelopers.org. Giorgio has the distinction of being the first person ever to get married at the Adobe MAX conference.
