I live in a cosmopolitan San Francisco Bay Area. I am facsinated by a variety of things: technology, psychology, physics, and life sciences.

I tried many things in life and either enjoyed them or learned valuable lessons from them. I taught and evangelized, delivered complex and challenging projects, managed IT organizations, and ran startups.

I thrive on challenge, enjoy learning, building things, and love a feeling of achievement. I believe in doing what I love, and fortunately, this is what I do. Life is too precious to waste.

I believe in personal ownership of issues and deliverables. I love to be surrounded by smart and creative people, who think big and make it happen. I believe in agile businesses, where value is created by teams with personal ownership, and where leadership and initiative are nurtured and unconstrained. I believe in teams where everyone strives to add value so that the sum total is greater than the parts. I also believe in making ethical choices that improve and protect our fragile world. I enjoy teaching, lifetime learning, and biking.
