Hello, I'm William—a technologist, entrepreneur, mentor, and music enthusiast. My journey began with a deep-rooted curiosity about the vast world of technology. During my tenure at IBM, I delved into the intricate realms of AI, Aerospace, and Quantum computing, honing my skills and nurturing a passion for innovation that would shape my path ahead.

A Curious Explorer
My fascination with technology led me to immerse myself in diverse projects and initiatives, where every challenge became an opportunity for growth. Over a decade at IBM, I explored the cutting-edge advancements in AI, delved into the complexities of Aerospace engineering, and ventured into the fascinating world of Quantum computing. Each experience fueled my thirst for knowledge and ignited a desire to make a tangible impact on the world around me.

Championing Innovation
Driven by a relentless pursuit of innovation, I embarked on an entrepreneurial journey—a journey defined by bold ideas, unwavering determination, and a commitment to excellence. As the CEO and co-founder of Evalify and The Adjacent Possible, I've had the privilege of shaping innovation ecosystems and championing talent across continents. From Latin America to the Middle East, I've witnessed the transformative power of technology firsthand, empowering startups to thrive and pushing the boundaries of what's possible.

A Catalyst for Change
Beyond the boardroom, I'm a passionate advocate for progress and a staunch supporter of community-driven initiatives. As an alumnus of esteemed programs like the Peter Drucker Forum and KIUAS, I've had the opportunity to engage with diverse communities, share insights, and inspire the next generation of innovators. As a Program Director at the Rome Business School, I'm dedicated to nurturing the minds of future tech leaders, instilling in them the values of innovation, integrity, and impact.

A Symphony of Creativity
In the quiet moments of reflection, I find solace and joy in the beauty of music. A self-taught concert pianist, I've embraced music as a form of self-expression and a source of inspiration. Whether performing at public events or cherished family gatherings, music allows me to connect with others on a deeper level and explore the intersection of creativity and technology.

Celebrating Success
Throughout my journey, I've been fortunate to receive numerous accolades and recognitions, from prestigious awards like the Stevie Awards to being honored as a finalist in competitions like the ESA Nordic Launch and Kiuas Accelerator. Each accolade serves as a testament to my unwavering commitment to excellence and my dedication to pushing the boundaries of innovation.

Join the Journey
Today, I invite you to join me on this journey of innovation and inspiration. Whether you're an aspiring entrepreneur, a seasoned technologist, or simply someone who shares my passion for pushing the boundaries of what's possible, there's a place for you in my world. Together, let's shape the future, one innovation at a time.
