Key Facts
  • If we were as many people as the languages we spoke, I would be a bit more than five people in one. This key fact allows me to analyse a given situation or an investment opportunity, from many different angles at once.
  • My versatility adds true grit and value to any venture capital investment and project.
Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution.

– Aristotle
