His artworks and feature articles on educational topics and creative thinking are published and syndicated in international magazines, newspapers, and books. G.

He has co-founded with Marie-Jo Waeber the Archimedes' Laboratory™ Project (, an interactive and entertaining site that provides online tutoring, educational content and activities to stimulate the mind and the imagination of the visitors (the website was quoted by Scientific American as follows: "This virtual lab borrows the empirical spirit and creative curiosity that Archimedes brought to his work and invites visitors to explore with the same expectations for mind-blowing discovery" - May 27, 2003).
