"I think technology today has gone beyond our expectations, but society has not yet closed the gap."

IF YOU COULD CHANGE ONE THING ABOUT HOW WE LIVE WITH TECHNOLOGY, WHAT WOULD IT BE? 

How we connect with nature. The technology age is dangerous because it shields you away from your natural self.

 

IF YOU COULD INVENT ANY PIECE OF TECHNOLOGY, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

For me, it would be to develop regeneration to combat the loss of limbs and paralysis - like a starfish.

 

WHAT IS THE TECHNOLOGICAL DEVELOPMENT YOU LOOK FORWARD TO THE MOST?

Investments in nutrition, health and psychological enlightenment.

 

IN THIS TIME OF RAPID CHANGE, IS THERE SOMETHING OLD SCHOOL YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE MORE OF?

Record players, there is something beautiful in vinyl.
