STEAM profile by design: holder of MA, MSc & MBA degrees.

Twenty-five years experience as software developer, research engineer, technical consultant and engineering/R&D/innovation manager in natural language processing (NLP) & speech technology. I have worked for startups, business conglomerates and in between, in a wide variety of industries, and often in an international setting (15+ trips to USA + 2 years fulltime in UK) .

I read, speak & write 5 natural languages, and 5+ programming languages (minus the speaking). I have built, coached and grown agile teams.

In my private life, I serve as a board member in a local community organization, focusing on sound financial management.

I occasionally give advice to – and sometimes invest in – startups at the seed and early stage.
