listen, I forget. I see, I recall. I do, I understand...
addition to my editorial
activities, I often co-organize exhibitions
of my own work. I also conduct and hold brain training
workshops and activities for cultural or scientific
with my educational products and exhibit materials
I frequently travel all over Europe to attend cultural
and educational events, holding workshops and sharing
my knowledge and ideas with adults and children
'catalyzing' the natural curiosity of the audience
I encourage the creative exploration of science
and art. My aim is to instill wonder by involving
the public in exciting experiments and demonstrations.
My most popular workshops and exhibitions are based
on my books (and
my interactive activities and workshops are intended

puzzles that amaze, and teach the readers about how
our brains work.
I write educational and illustrated books that enhance
visual thinking skills and train the brain while having
