Hi, I'm HK!

Father. Husband. Athlete. Entrepreneur. Investor. Tech Maven.

About.

I’m a family guy in my early thirties who loves to build things, learn, and take risks. After a decade and some – of being in the rat race, I left the corporate world, and my wife and I decided to pick up our family and move to Valencia, Spain in order to replenish and focus on family, health, and well-being.

I have had the opportunity to spend a lot of time with my kids. Something I am extremely thankful for. And the way my wife and I raise them, they too have taught us a lot about ourselves. Nothing goes above family and wonderful friends.

Towards the end of 2019 we picked up our family again and moved to Düsseldorf, Germany where I lead Operational Excellence. Albeit having met wonderful people and friends, we came to the conclusion that we need a different environment, so in 2022 we moved to an island.

While progressing professionally, I’ve always been a full-performance athlete (at heart anyway) always seeking to fulfill my desires by doing what I love, with near perfectionism and passion. From a young age I was actively involved in a multitude of sports from soccer to American football, martial arts (Black Belt 1 Dan – Shodon) to Track and Field. At the age of 14, I completed my first of many marathons.

Now I primarily focus on triathlons, with road biking being my favorite discipline and leaning on my wife to make sure I eat right. That’s because I love food. Like really, I seriously love food. I love cooking and I love eating. And my kids seem to be the same.

I believe that every day is full of new opportunities and that you need to seize them, crushing your limits at everything you do to become a better person and inspire the world for good. Life to me is a mindset, soak in your surroundings the best you can and never stop engaging. I believe that life is a fine balance between ambition, working hard, and spending time on important things without having to compromise on one’s goals. I have been fortunate enough to do that after leaving my corporate job, studying and the opportunities’ life has given me.

Now it’s time for new challenges.

Work.

I am a leader at heart.

After my studies, I went corporate and from there on was fortunate enough, through hard work and smart hustle, to begin a quick climb on the career ladder. I’ve always been very dedicated, focused, and a quick learner, and love working with people to improve operations and the customer journey/experience.

Over the past years, I have held a variety of management roles at companies like HP, HPE, and Lime, leading teams of up to 400+ people with responsibilities in a variety of areas.

I have a BA in Business Administration and two Master’s degrees. In the meantime, I founded my own business because I love helping others succeed. Investing provides huge opportunities, hence I do that from time to time. Albeit having a “time out” from the corporate world, I continue to have the privilege of mentoring and coaching individuals from all walks of life. Something that is close to my heart, as I believe leadership is not about rising up, but helping others rise.

This site.

This website first went online in 2008 and has gone through many iterations, failures, growths, and whatnot.

This is a place where I share my thoughts and ideas on everything from business, and technology, to fitness and my personal life.

I’m glad you stopped by, and if you read this far, do reach out to me. Let’s get in touch on Twitter, or have a conversation over coffee and brainstorm ideas.

That being said, welcome to my home on the web.
