I’m a tech entrepreneur and software engineer based in New York. I started my first company, Brainient, when I was 19 and spent the following 10 years building it into one of the leading ad-tech companies in Europe. Brainient was acquired by Teads in September 2016 and for the past year I’ve been scaling our business unit (now called Teads Studio) globally.
Outside work I enjoy spending time with my wife and learning new things. To address the latter, I’ve taken on a new experiment every year since 2008. Some of the most challenging and interesting ones were sleeping 2.5 hours per day for two months (polyphasic sleep), reading a book per week and training my memory with a world memory champion.
A few other things that I’m currently interested in are deep learning, cryptocurrencies, mid-century modern architecture and, of course, advertising.
