Artificial Intelligence

Researcher. Leader. Entrepreneur.


My greatest achievements and most precious moments have always been with my family.


From Natural Language Processing and Networks, to Economics and Philosophy.


Building tomorrow’s society and economy through intelligent solutions and hard work.


innovative solutions to the world’s most important challenges.

In family, society, and business, I seek to create a nurturing environment for creativity and the development of new ideas. As technology and the growth of automation accelerate, we must take responsibility for what we want the future to look like. How do we build resilient and sustainable economies? How do we help individuals feel passionate, driven, and successful? How do we foster relationships that last, based on empathy, sympathy, and respect?

About me

A British, Italian, and American citizen, I have lived, studied, and worked across Europe and the US, and travelled much farther: seeking to understand different cultures and perspectives. I consider myself a citizen of the world, culturally rooted in Europe’s intellectualism and liberal social philosophy.


Born to sailors, chased by pirates, across languages and cultures, exploring, learning, standing up for right, and fighting for change. Living happily ever after with my one and only best friend and soulmate, Anastassia Fedyk.


I am a strong believer that the economy of the future will be predicated on independence, innovation, and entrepreneurship. You should be passionate about what you do and why it matters.
