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 money were no object, I would tell you it would be writing and researching exponential technologies. 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 lead me to my latest project: The Rubicon. A consultancy helping companies chart a course into the future. Emerging technologies are exciting, especially for 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 will impact your life and your career.

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

And now, a little bit about me:
