son of an immigrant vietnam veteran father and humanitarian american mother, dimitri’s early years were largely explorative and transient. both highly educated and compassionate, his parents introduced young dimitri to the wider world around him-by nurturing his creativity, he grew up with a heightened sense of possibility, imagination and problem-solving abilities. with a certified iq of 129, his insatiable curiosity revealed itself in enterprising ways. it wasn’t long before dimitri, who was entrepreneurial-spirited, created several neighborhood businesses including grass-cutting and car washing.

during his 20s, dimitri took a strong interest in quantum mechanics and noetic sciences which led to him becoming a self-taught computer programmer.  he has continued to seek out several mentorship opportunities and new experiences at mit and beyond, and has become certified in several technical skills.

today dimitri lives in the united states with his wife and children.
