My name is Alexander Debenham Cahiz, but you can call me Alex.

If you were to ask me what I would be busy doing if all my everyday needs were met, I would tell you it would be writing. My career has taken me on an amazing journey of roles and companies, but the theme that connects them together is creating and publishing media often related to technology.

My collective experiences and underlying passion have lead me to my latest project: The Rubicon. An online publication about crossing into the future. Emerging technologies are exciting, especially to geeks like me, but often it is hard to see how they will impact our day to day lives. At The Rubicon, we dive into these topics to build mental models and understand how things like blockchain, AI, augmented reality, quantum computing and genetic engineering can make an impact in your life and in your job.

I am always open to new and exciting opportunities so please contact me anytime!

And now, a little bit about me:
