The fifth industrial revolution
When the European Space Agency (ESA) contacted me in early 2018 to collaborate with my research on artificial intelligence and the concept of scientific exploration in the 21st century I felt like a pandora box had opened.

  • Deviating from the Norm


Each day I endeavour to work to the best of my abilities and for the improvement of society. I am here to inspire and enable others achieve their full potential, whether they are my students, my clients or readers of my books.


There is not just one way to address life, work and play. Reality is a kaleidoscope of possibilities and outcomes. Judgement is the biggest shackle to our mind.


I see what others do not. I thrive in environments where all the moving parts become connected dots that form pathways for opportunity and discovery.


Life is a force of  continuous change and challenges. Embracing serendipity, being always ready is within our DNA. We are explorers in a reality bursting with constant transformation.


All that there is exists because its effect in the world becomes the catalyst of everything else. If we integrate our actions into this natural structure, we can build a better reality.
