Angele Giuliano

Angele Giuliano

Director
[email protected]

Angele is the entrepreneur behind AcrossLimits. She was barely out of University when she decided she could make a difference to the IT industry. After a few challenging years she fell in love with European projects and the great world out there, and set about changing her company from a small Malta-based firm, to an innovative research SME.

Angele is normally seen in high heels and with a smile on her face. Her tongue-in-cheek humour and positive attitude has helped the company move forward even when things got tough with the crisis and all. Her background in innovation (read ‘crazy ideas’) has given birth to many of our projects.

Angele speaks fluent Maltese, English and Italian and can be contacted most easily via email or Whatsapp.

Jacqueline Bugeja

Jacqueline Bugeja

General Manager
[email protected]

Jacqueline is the motor behind all day-to-day operations at AcrossLimits. She deals with all number crunching aspects of projects and clients and everyone, (including Angele!), understands that her word is law when it comes to money.
Her path to working in finance has been an extremely winding one! She originally studied sciences as she wanted to become a doctor of medicine, but she shelved this dream after a while. She then worked with large local organisations like AirMalta and MIM before making AcrossLimits her home.

Her hobbies are mainly reading fantasy books, and crafts – anything from crochet to egg-decorating. She has a number of pets that include tropical fish, water turtles and fresh-water shrimps.

Maryrose Francica

Maryrose Francica

EU Project Manager
[email protected]

Maryrose is in charge of European Projects within AcrossLimits. She’s almost part of the fabric as she’s been with the company for over 12 years now – and she’s our most frequent flyer – with eventful and funny incidents wherever she goes.

Maryrose has entrepreneurship at heart and a love for educational or social projects. Her work allows her to make a difference to both areas, and even though she is sometimes faced with academics and mad scientists, her practical approach has always garnered respect and people stop to listen. She has a wide network of contacts throughout Europe and beyond, and networking is as part of her as is breathing.

Her idea of relaxation is reading a good book, or enjoying great food surrounded by friends or family. Maryrose is fiercely patriotic towards Malta, although from all the countries she’s visited, Ireland has always had a special place in her heart!

Juanita Muscat

Juanita Muscat

EU Project Manager
[email protected]

Juanita is the newest addition to the AcrossLimits Project Management Team. Graduated from the
University of Malta in Electrical Engineering in 2000, she has built up experience in various areas of
Engineering and Management. Juanita is very looking forward to support the team on EU projects.
She is eager to learn new things, participate in a variety of projects and see them running
successfully.

Juanita has at heart children education and wellbeing, animal rights, the environment and
innovation. She is called the “Cat woman” by her family and friends as she has 4 cats at home and is
often seen feeding strays around the area where she lives. She loves working with children and
teenagers. She is mostly seen with a big smile on her face (unless she gets up on the wrong side of
the bed that is) and loves networking, socializing and organizing fun events for children and adults
alike.

Juanita has a passion for life, family, good food and knowledge. Her hobbies are cooking and
traveling. She is always experimenting in the kitchen to create healthy delicacies for family and
friends. So much so, that a couple of years ago, she started her own “Home made healthy way”
catering business. This was a short entrepreneurship adventure for her, which although quite
successful, could not be sustained long term due to family needs.

Lourdes Cini

Lourdes Cini

Office Administrator
[email protected]

Lourdes is the coordinator of Training Malta and organises all courses held at our office. She is always happy to assist participants with dedication and enthusiasm whist also assisting the General Manager with logistics and event planning. Lourdes is a mother of 3, enjoys gardening and is a regular volunteer at the non-for-profit organisation, Caritas Malta which offers a number
free services to better serve the local community.

Anna Maria Darmanin

Anna Maria Darmanin

Digital Agenda and European Policy Consultant
[email protected]sslimits.com

Anna Maria works mostly from Brussels although she is also often zooming around different European countries. She focuses on issues related to digital agenda, education, entrepreneurship and social affairs.

Anna’s background is quite eclectic having been an entrepreneur herself with companies in areas related to business management, environmental services and training. She is also one of the Maltese representatives in Brussels for the Economic and Social Committee, having also been Vice President for Communications of the same institution for a couple of years. Within AcrossLimits she helps in the creation and management of projects whilst doing desk-based research on a multitude of areas.
Anna Maria is a fashion guru. Her style is unmistakable and she favours Italian designers above all others. She is also a commercial skipper and spends lots of time sailing around islands in the Mediterranean and beyond, whilst dreaming up new ideas for a better world.

Kim Busuttil

Kim Busuttil

EU Project Assistant
[email protected]

Kim works on our European projects focusing mostly on those with a social or educational element. Her academic background is European Studies and Law. University taught her to always set up tangible goals and timelines. Kim loves studying, albeit she believes that the greatest lessons are learnt away from the school bench.

Her dissertation, which was based on EU mobility programmes and youth employability, was awarded the Best Dissertation Award in 2016 by the Institute for European Studies at The University of Malta.

A very special experience for her was volunteering in Cambodia. She was part of a team that provided support to the evolving community in order for it to become self-sustained and empowered. This experience has led her to become more aware of the insular tendencies of us Europeans and has made her want to work towards enlightening others of the fact that we do not live in a bubble, and that whatever we do will contribute to a global cycle: both positively and negatively.

Kim is a lover of coffee, with an affinity to travel, poetry, Johnny Cash and good food.

Melissa Muscat

Melissa Muscat

Marketing/Communications Officer
[email protected]

Melissa is the marketing and communications officer for AcrossLimits. She participates in European Projects and is particularly passionate about those which emphasise health, education and community. Her academic background includes a Bachelor in Communications with a focus on Public Relations, as well as a Bachelor in Performance.

Her addiction to travel and food took her from Melbourne, Australia on a European adventure in early 2017. She has since made Malta her home and pastizzi her new addiction! She is often seen keeping the AcrossLimits team entertained with spontaneous office bursts of song and dance which she is adamant is loved by all.

Others interests include music, makeup artistry, animals, food…food…more food, and did we mention – food?

Emanuele Pristera’

Emanuele Pristera’

Web Developer
[email protected]

Emanuele is Italian and began programming when he was just a teenager. He continued to develop his skills while he juggled part-time work and also studied. His studies specialized in CMS and web languages. He enjoys teamwork and challenges, and always aims for the best result. Emanuele’s hidden talents are playing the piano, synth and electric guitar since he was a teenager. He has combined these skills to also become a soundtrack composer. In his free time, he loves playing video games, racing cars and developing new tuning systems for Japanese cars. His motto is “Carpe Diem!”

Davide Platania

Davide Platania

Developer
[email protected]

Since he was a little child Davide was, and still is, fascinated by the possibility to communicate with others, be they humans, animals… or computers! This was in fact the very passion which drove Davide towards the study of programming languages: to be able to “explain” to machines how to bring all the crazy ideas that kept popping up in his brain to life.

Apart from programming, he also loves playing video games, reading, practicing meditation and travelling, thereby continuously increasing his knowledge of different languages and cultures and meeting people from all around the world. Davide is Italian and, on a daily basis, asks one of the team to teach him a phrase or a word in Maltese!

Mark Cauchi

Mark Cauchi

Junior Developer

Mark is a graduate in B.Sc. (Hons.) in Computer Engineering with First Class Honours, and is furthering his studies in M.Sc. in Signals, Systems and Control for the year of October 2018 till October 2019. He is slightly shy upon meeting new people, but within a few minutes, he becomes very comfortable around them. He is a team player, and really enjoys working in projects with other people. He enjoys the simple things in life, like music and food. He is eager to learn as he believes that “knowledge is power”. He has a passion for creating and visualizing new concepts that could be used to make lives easier.

Pierre Sammut

Pierre Sammut

Financial and EU Project Consultant
[email protected]

Pierre enjoys financial management, which is daunting to many, but comes naturally to him. He works on putting structure in projects and companies in order to optimise the efficient use of resources
Pierre’s background is varied, spanning telecoms companies, cultural heritage institutions, retail chains and health and educational organisations. He has a serious difficulty in saying no, which is why he ends up with the most challenging projects that sometimes require total restructuring. With AcrossLimits he participates in areas related to business planning and development within projects that deal with primary and tertiary economic sectors.

Pierre is also a born shopper: he enjoys hunting for good quality products whether it’s a sports watch or a tailored suit. He’s an AC Milan fan which means that he gets teased a lot in the office when they do badly (which thankfully for him is not so often!)

Steve Robertshaw

Steve Robertshaw

Senior Sustainability & Policy Consultant
[email protected]

Steve is old. And grumpy. The first computers he got his hands on were not PCs. The first code he cut was not even OO. Since then he has gone from pseudo code and writing compilers to developing technology policy and technology strategy at the national and international levels.

Steve has worked in academia, small business, large business and government long enough to know that he does not like politics of any kind. He originates from the north of England where words are precious and used sparingly and questions receive short, sometimes blunt, answers. If you don’t like what you hear, he is more than happy to debate with you. And even if there’s a gang of you, he is stupid enough to not back down if he believes that right is on his side. This mix of personality disorders means that clients often call on Steve to solve
thorny problems.

Steve currently focuses on three main technical areas: High Performance Computing, Artificial intelligence & Machine Reasoning, and Novel Software Architectures. He is regularly appointed by the EC in expert roles for these areas. He also knows a thing or two about Cyber Security, Informatics and Technology Transfer. He is a business mentor. His hobby is Ontology, even the misguided forms. His heroes are WVO Quine, CS Pierce and Noam Chomsky.

Steve doesn’t care if he is colour coordinated or not, he cuts his hair when it annoys him, and only sometimes irons his shirts. Unable to safely climb mountains and run marathons any more, Steve spends his spare time listening to dreadful music, eating curry and sitting in traffic jams.
