Dubbed the "Jackson Pollock of contemporary contextual intelligence" by his peers for his critical analysis of politics, economics, and culture, Louis D. Lo Praeste is an autodidact and polymath who published his first novel in Capernaum, Massachusetts in July 2016. He followed up shortly thereafter with a collection of essays on political economy entitled Vague Apocalyptica in June 2017. His writing reflects a down-to-earth sensibility on human morality and consciousness, the problems of modern "spirituality", as well as alternative economic theories and models. As of late 2018, Mr. Lo Praeste was editing a modern mystical parable-The Oath, a chapbook of poetry-Songs of Coming and Going, and working on a second novel--Kstigharba. He splits his time between London, New England, and Northern California where he is the CEO and Founder of bigthinker.ai. You can read and learn more about Louis at www.bigthinker.com.

He was educated at Northeastern University in Boston, the University of London, and more recently The University of Edinburgh.
