About me:

I am an engineer, entrepreneur, and adventurer, and for the past 2.5 years I've been working as a management consultant at McKinsey & Company to solve complex problems with high impact on society.

I'm currently on a leave from McKinsey working at Clarity, a start-up developing a methodology and automated tool for asset managers to measure and optimize the social and environmental impact of their investment portfolios.

In the past, I have launched several entrepreneurial ventures: a non-profit consulting group that grew in size to 25 consultants and 8 projects in 3 months, a revolutionary product that aimed to disrupt the market of disposable cups, and an electronic t-shirt that helps people prevent back diseases by correcting bad habit postures.

I believe in accelerating personal growth by living extraordinary experiences. I have lived homeless for 6 weeks in London, bought a motorbike in Laos and rode it through mountains, rice fields and villages all the way to Vietnam, walked half of the Korean peninsula without money, only with a sleeping bag and a diary, retired to Buddhist Temples in Myanmar and South Korea, and lived 2 months in the outskirts of Lagos, Nigeria
