👋 Hi! I’m Lorenzo!

I’m a serial founder, software developer, person who likes exercise, transplant recipient, and bilingual.

I currently do ML/AI software development work for a Fortune 100 company in the Bay Area. I’m fortunate enough to be listed as an Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Ignite Innovators in Seoul, where I help scout and assess biotech startups for investment and incubation. I suspect that eventually they’d like me to found a bio-adjacent startup of my own.

My public Twitter account is @LSwank, where I’m relatively quiet. I’m much more unfilted here.

I mostly write about cross-cultural competence, design thinking applied to the world, health, technology, . . . just whatever is on my mind.

Some of my best posts are:
