I’m passionate about startups. Having founded my first company at age 14, I’ve built various tech companies, invested in ten and currently work on a productivity startup, a computer vision company and a crypto currency. To spend as much time as possible with my companies, which are spread across two continents, I gave up on having an apartment in 2016 and have since lived out of a bag.

I write about various areas of my life and how I constantly strive for improvement. I travel all the time, own only 64 things — all of which are black — and spend an average of 3.7 days in the same location.

Companies and investments

At the end of last year I became very eager to start my own company again. I founded Sendtask, a productivity tool, and got involved in a more operational role with DFINITY, a crypto-currency with a team based in Zurich and Palo Alto; and Glimpse, a Computer Vision startup in the bar / restaurant industry based in Miami. I still take an active role as an investor and advisor at 8 other companies.
