MY PASSION

I am a tech person. My passion is to put machines to work for people. More specifically – IT, AI for businesses and their customers. I love making people happy; make systems work.

MY BELIEF

There is always a better way, an endless room for personal & organizational growth. We only use a fraction of the potential of the tech available. First grow, then optimize. Fail fast. Create value, not features. Speed of learning makes the difference, not the facts.
