I'm someone who likes to see a connection between technology, design, science, and a good life for all of us on this planet.

17 years in technoloygy R&D, an entrepreneurial mind with keen interest in long-term research, multimodal UI design, human-computer relations, augmented and virtual reality, nanosciences including wide use of nanotechnology, biomaterials, ubiquitous computing, cleantech, renewable energy sources etc.
