2. Tell us a bit about yourself.

I think, I consider myself an observer, I like to go into the finest details of anything, narrowing down to its cause perhaps, it does build the idea, that at the root of all things are very general in their real nature.

I like challenges, maybe its my idea of my past that pushes me to prove myself because I think the persona you make around people, it starts making people expect things from you, like the idea that he or she does things that we don't understand but one day he or she might do something really great.

3. Tell us about the things you make / write / manage / build.

I write about the problems, I solve, whether technologically or perhaps psychologically, sometimes intertwined.

I try to make and build things that in my opinion can have the potential of changing the way things are, I always presume what if the world was a utopia, what would it be like, and whatever comes to my mind, is what I work to bring into reality.

4. What are you most excited about right now?

That the world considers my contributions worthy.

5. What are you worried about right now?

If I can keep up to that image.

6. What's the most useful advice you've ever given somebody?

Don't be stagnant, develop the habit of upgrading yourself for truth sleeps in the rock, dreams in the plant, stirs in the animal and awakens in man.

7. How has the pandemic changed your life and/or career?

It has allowed me to focus on myself, I think by confinement, one is able to get less distracted by the noise that surrounds you.

The pandemic has allowed to me explore possibilities that I never thought of.

8. If we gave you $10 million to invest in one thing right now, where would you put it?

I would put it in my startup, and bring forth the ability for people to once more breathe clean air, so that their life spans can drastically increase, we have lost a lot of people.

9. What's an opinion you have that most people don't agree with?

That Anybody can make a difference, all it needs is just a ripple in the pond.

Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence.
