On a Quest
to understand
the knowledege deep
in every man
One needn't know
the reasons why
but to achieve
one must try

I am a creator at heart

With a background in Human Factors and Network Infrastructure Engineering I've designed many different technical solutions for private companies, Fortune 500® companies, U.S. Government, non-profits, private estates and even luxury yachts.

A huge passion of mine is in creating Artificial Ingelligence that is focused on teaching machines to learn like we as humans do. I affectionately call the project The Intent Engine

Working with AI/ML/NLP means I get to dive into the philosophical realm and explore the way we as humans think, believe and act. I get to investigate our thought processes and how different mindsets are formed and changed over time.
These philosophical dillemnas and the questions that I ponder surrounding them tend to steer the development of The Intent Engine. My musings can be found on my blog.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain
