About Me

My focus is on Human+Machine Intelligence (specifically data classification for Natural Language Understanding and measuring consumer perceptions), product innovation and inclusion in technology. I've been on both sides of the table working in startups as well as in Strategic Investments & Corporate Strategy, CEO-Chairman's Office, UBS investment bank. I'm a triple (product, designer and engineer), a Maths graduate (99% in Prob&Stats exam), a big fan of Da Vinci's work and I believe in the power and magic of people to invent the future by learning from the past. In my spare time I love to travel, take photos, make stuff and experience diverse cultures. A fun fact is I've raced a camel across the Sahara to get to a Nubian village where they didn't have running water but did have satellite TV!
