His respect, trust, and encouragement towards his colleagues in my eyes make him an icon in the world of Artificial Intelligence and Business.” – Milan Amin (former CMO Binance, CMO Blockchain Warehouse)

 “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

“Gege provides our publication with interesting articles covering his areas of expertise. These are well researched and provide valuable insights to our readers.”
– Ambrose Muscat, (Consulting Editor, The Malta Economic Update)
