Be it artistic, scientific, or philosophical, a new idea can forever change a single life or the entire world. Some ideas are the basis of good business; others are just good ideas that serve to enlighten and enrich our lives. I am inspired by new ideas, the people who have them, and the people who turn them into new realities.
I have been fortunate to have turned a few ideas into entrepreneurial ventures, and am always imagining new creative possibilities. Currently, I am focused on the fusion of information technology and media.
