About me



I am an author and documentary film director developing, directing and producing independent projects that mostly explore themes in creativity, innovation, science, technology, and society. My films have screened at festivals around the world.

Other Things I’ve Done

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), got an alphabet soup of post-grad designations 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). I founded and co-founded startups in Zurich, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Tokyo. I have started podcasts and published books on entrepreneurship, innovation, Open Data, and impact investing.
