An Early Win

As many of you know by now, I have stepped full time into founding a US-based green technology company, enistic.

The Next Chapter Begins–Sort Of

A friend of mine from the Rice volleyball team, Klara, lives there and she kindly opened her doors on very short notice to host me. It was a wonderful–if short–weekend that has left me hungry toContinue reading “Prague, Musical City”

In this blog entry I will lay out the reasons behind my decision and presentContinue reading “A New Way”
