I studied engineering at Georgia Tech, doing undergraduate work in Atlanta, followed by graduate work in France, at Georgia Tech Lorraine. My first job was doing signal processing engineering at the European Space Agency in Germany, and later founded an engineering company to grow that work. That company, MakaluMedia GmbH, was later acquired.
With a passion for design and technology, I founded an American company called Makalu Interactive that has built products for brands like Google and Virgin America, as well as apps like RaceSplitter, Rego and ChessDrop.
Disciplined investing facilitated key opportunities in my life. To help others achieve the same, I wrote a small book that teaches the powerful principles in a way that’s easy to understand and implement. It’s available for free, at Money for Something.
I’m a three-time European gold medalist in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, a martial art in which I received my black belt in 2011. A fan of the Paleo diet and P90x for health and fitness, I enjoy living off the beaten path, and exploring the diverse experiences and cultures the world has to offer.
I’ve always been deeply interested in innovative application of technology, and my current focus is around blockchain technologies.
