I'm a tech enthusiast and entrepreneur to the core. Since high school I have always combined both. Life took me across Europe and Asia to do things differently, submerge myself in new cultures and build exciting things that people love to use.
I am happy to be able to understand complex technical concepts and explain, simplify and implement them. But because of my solid business understanding, i look at things from both a technical and a business perspective.
I like human interactions.
DeFi, Cryptocurrency and Distributed Ledger Technology is of special interest to me.
I am married, have a dachshund called Gin, and Italy is my favorite holiday destination.
