My interests are varied. Yes, I have long been involved with the arts, most particularly drawing, painting, sculpture, photography and television production, but I have also been a keen spectator of physics, philosophy, cinema, engineering, sciences in general and of human development.

I work in a field that frequently deals with changing the culture of work through managed change engagements. They are most often aligned to new technology adoption or digital transformation efforts.

If one death post a day is not enough for you, then you’ve just got lucky! In November 2017, I learned about another way too early departure of someone I knew. I was in Tokyo on a business trip. It was a crisp and unusually clear morning, with the rising sun painting the sprawling megalopolis […]

ANALYSIS/OPINION: In the Age of Trump, a growth industry of commentators and critics is in search of a mythical image, a graphic insight, a metaphorical phrase to capture our fragmented politics and culture. “Make America Great Again” worked as a campaign slogan, but it’s about process, not essence. For self-glorification and euphemism, no one beat […]
