My little corner of the web

I studied engineering at Georgia Tech, doing undergraduate work in Atlanta, followed by graduate work in France, at Georgia Tech Lorraine.

I started my career at the European Space Agency in Germany, and later founded an engineering company to grow that work. That company, MakaluMedia GmbH, grew to about 35, and was acquired.

Deeply interested in design and technology, I founded an American company called Makalu Interactive, in which I work today, that has done acclaimed work for brands like Google and Virgin America.

Frustrated that the fundamentals of investing aren’t taught in school, and are broadly misunderstood, I wrote a small book that covers it all, and can be read in an hour. 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.

I enjoy living off the beaten path, and exploring the diverse experiences and cultures the world has to offer. My current interests include blockchain technologies, as well as angel investing through AngelList.
