About me

I have published books on fintech, impact investing, innovation, entrepreneurship, and Open Data. I have started podcasts about blockchain technology and deep tech. I founded and co-founded startups in Zurich, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Tokyo. I am a documentary film director of independent projects that explore themes in creativity, innovation, science, technology, and society.

Other things I have been doing

I have been an award-winning music composer for films and music projects with major music labels and film studios. I studied economics at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), have post-grad designations in finance and have led an Open Data research project as a senior researcher at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH). I have guest lectured at Harvard University’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences, at Tohoku University in Sendai/Japan and at the University of Applied Sciences in Business Administration Zurich (HWZ).
