My passion for sustainable changes and transformation processes made me become involved in politics and social movements at an early age. Studying Philosophy, Politics, and Economics helped me to understand and reflect social interrelations better and motivated me to learn more about social entrepreneurship.

By seeking profound opportunities of building a better world for people I moved to Israel and became involved in the startup ecosystem. I supported innovation to grow in other countries while getting an MBA and founding my own startup.

Combining my experiences in politics, academia, and business, I now lead transformation processes in cities, regions, and countries that make people passionate about their habitats. Using the potential of Smart Cities to disrupt societies I create a sustainable future of resilient communities.
