What they’re saying:
“Gege has deep and relevant knowledge of IT-Law matters. He’s an active prime participant in the Cloud-Privacy-Check project which brings together 44 lawyers from 32 countries to provide better understanding and awareness on data privacy. He has demonstrated to be insightful, methodical and with a positive flair for international strategic cooperation.” – Tobias Höllwarth (President of EuroCloud Europe)
“Gege has deep knowledge in IT, Law, Marketing and Business Development. He is a passionate director who inspires and motivates those around him. He is always extremely focused on delivering results and consistently ensures that projects are completed on time and at the highest level. Gege is a natural leader, an excellent mentor and very strong at maintaining trusting relationships with key stakeholders.” – Carl Saydon (Digital Marketing Manager, ICON)
“I have known Gege for many years – first as a web development contractor, through his company ICON, and now as a business partner in Muovo. With time, we have both strayed away from our core professional practices (in his case, law) to run businesses in technology and digital media. Gege is smart, sharp and gets things done. That is why he was the ideal partner at Muovo – he understands what it takes to help move people and companies up the ICT value chain.”
– Alex Grech, (Owner, Strategy Works)
“Gege’s “eye” for photography is so unique, it inspires me to want to keep looking at simple, everyday objects differently, artistically. I especially like the contemplative expression on his portrait subjects, it makes you wonder what they’re thinking.”
– Jenny Anna Ung, Designer, Texas US
“I always loved pictures but the fist time I saw Gege’s photos I was so moved I fell in love with photography. He is a truly inspirational figure and I’ve been hooked up on his posts all this time because they have so much energy, creativity and passion you can never get enough.”
– Christina Goggi, Journalist
