Advised institutional investors on their venture and private equity allocation for a while. Then left that comfortable life to start my own company and failed. Now, I am learning from someone more experienced than me how to do it. 

I help out with the family farm in my spare time and I know something about olive oil because of this.

In one week I learned how to appreciate #art a bit more and discovered something I didn’t know I would be interested in: the Devil! 

Here is a quick summary of what we learned at The Garden this week: 


😞 The science behind stress. When we are stressed we don’t feel thirsty or hungry, and we become somewhat like zombies. What can make stress worse is the fact that sometimes it is normalised in Western cultures “shut up and put up with it” - with Dr. David Plans from Royal Holloway


🖼️ What makes Vincent van Gogh’s Wheat Field with Cypresses such a wonderful piece of art and what art is more in general. It is difficult if not impossible to say what is art. More likely the real question to ask is “when” something is considered art - with Dr. James Fox from Cambridge University


📕 How the Devil came to hold such a central place in Christian thought. Starting from the Middle Ages, when the Devil reached the height of his imaginative popularity, to his (her?) slow withdrawal from public affairs - with Dr Mikki Brock from Washington and Lee University

What did you learn this week? 

I would love to hear what your lightbulb moments are if you ended up in one of them. Next week we have an exciting talk about gender identity with the author of Galileo’s Middle Finger. 

Stay curious!
