The link between technology and the human being has always fascinated me. I have been observing this relationship for more than twenty years of my life and I must say that you never stop learning. I admit, however, that I am not a big fan of focusing on just one thing. Every day we are programmed to become specialists with an obsession. Of course, specialization is integral to today’s highly complex world. But taken to the extreme, I feel that it becomes myopic and not conducive to making the best decisions. My best career experiences have been working alongside multi-disciplinary professionals ranging from engineers, lawyers, scientists, environmental specialists, creatives, and doctors. These professionals have not only brought a set of skills on projects which I did not possess, but also a completely different way of thinking that I would never have imagined. These interactions have helped me broaden my outlook not only in my work but also in my life.
For me, there is more to life than work. It is too short and beautiful to miss out on a multitude of emotions, feelings, and experiences that remain forever treasured in your memories. Aside from my family, my biggest passions are laughing and learning about everything and anything. Nothing beats traveling the world, exploring new places, learning about new cultures and reliving the history of our ancestors, or soaking into the beauty of nature all in the company of my wife and children. I also like getting lost in different worlds of reading ranging from history, politics, philosophy, literature, science, and fiction. I cannot resist the temptation of a good plate of Mediterranean pasta and the aroma of a good bottle of white wine. I have long given up mastering the art of playing Fortnite, Minecraft, Legends of Zelda or Roblox with my sons as I struggle to make sense of these games.
Over time, I programmed myself into a daily exercising and meditation routine that has greatly improved my mental and physical outlook as it helps keep my focus and be more productive.
