About Me

Welcome and thanks for taking your time. Briefly, I'm an award-winning geek with substantial experience in the online industry in general and the e-commerce domain in particular. 

I founded my first startup at 16 years of age and have since started over dozens of different companies. Since the late nineties, being in an entrepreneurial environment and developing successful businesses have been two of my greatest passions. I focus on meaningful entrepreneurship by supporting entrepreneurs to explore and develop sustainable and impactful businesses.

In the last decade, I have held several executive positions and advisory roles in global enterprises. I'm also a frequent speaker at some of Europe's largest e-business conferences.
