About the author and this website

Back in Paris


Javier Pimentel Calderon is a Lawyer, a fintech native, an MLB (this degree awarded by both Bucerius Law School & WHU Otto Beisheim School of Management), a Photography Enthusiast, a compulsive traveller and a geek. He is currently the Head of Compliance for Amazon (Amazon Payment Services) in the Mena region and he previously served as Legal Director - Fintech Legal for the Delivery Hero group, Chief Legal Officer at Mash and Senior Vice president - Legal and Compliance at Monedo (formerly Kreditech), the last two companies being pioneers in the implementation of fully automated consumer credit underwriting processes enabled by artificial intelligence (and in applying those processes to very innovative buy-now-pay-later solutions "BNPL")

He also listens to a lot of music and, in general, doesn't enjoy referring to himself in the third person.

This blog used to be called "Divagaciones, Sinsentidos y Rockanrol'" during the adolescent years of the author (and he had a very long adolescence). At the time it was mostly a collection of ramblings about living in Colombia (and Latin-america), a showcase for his pictures and a place to occasionally share his sense of awe about a book, a movie or a band. In its current form and under its new name, the blog also harbors some commentary about Law and Technology, Financial Regulation and about the public policy that informs the regulation of technology (specially financial technology), which are important themes in the author's career.
