Technology is a double edged sword, and it’s humans that give it a bias. It has the potential to set civilisations free, and to enslave and persecute them, it has the power to heal, and to harm, and it has the potential to help you reach for the stars, or put you on the street.


As the future continues to take shape, and as the world around you and your family continues to change, via this site, and through my talks, I try to encourage conversation and debate, to empower people to see their own potential and break the status quo, and shine a light on the opportunities and threats ahead that confront us all.
