Knowledge is the key.

From social discord to environmental disasters to greed, virtually every problem originates in the lack of knowledge.

All around us, we are witnessing explosive growth of knowledge and invention bringing positive changes and tangible progress.

With that, I focus my resources on areas where knowledge and technology have the greatest impact on world challenges in order to bring about the wondrous future that is clearly just around the corner.
