"Celui qui vient au monde pour ne rien troubler,

ne mérite ni regards, ni patience."

René Char



If I have been able to pioneer over the past four decades it is first and foremost thanks to a few exceptional friends and mentors who have inspired me to go beyond even my wildest dreams, to accept tremendous challenges, to be prepared to risk it all, and yet have the confidence that if everything fails, we still have so many friends that I can slowly rise up to the next occasion.


I am on a mission with passion, inspired by wisdom of science, shaped by the beauty of nature and the arts. No one put me in charge, but me. The state of the world and the plight of billions make it impossible to accept a status quo, or simple an improvement. We need to give ourselves the freedom to go beyond the present, and even change the rules of the game without ever saying that one is bad, believing that everyone without any exception can always do better. 


All endeavors are undertaken not to pursue self-enrichment or a satisfaction of the ego, it is a commitment to live life on a path that pursues a sustainable world where we are able to respond to the basic needs of all with what we have. A path that allows us to learn ever more and realize that the only science is a temporary one, and that we are in pursuit of discovery of the web of life. 


I did not come to this world to please, and that is why the wise words of René Char motivate me to go beyond reason and yet whenever I am considered unreasonable, there is a grain of self-evidence in my action. And that is why I welcome you with gratitude for entering into the page and sharing with me your patience.
