He now spends his time as a venture-builder, futurist, and storyteller who is on a mission to disrupt people’s mindsets instead of just their business models.
He believes that we're all on our way to an increasingly digital future where the more human you are, the more valuable you'll be to the world that's coming. Aspects that a machine will never truly be able to replicate like compassion, empathy, belief, self-awareness, etc will be even more priceless in that future.
Digital isn't what's really disrupting the market & businesses today; People are.
