Making the world a better place for generations to come.

From early childhood, I set out to convey a profound and positive impact on the long-term future of humanity, to make the world a better place for the generations to come, as we continue forwards in our collective journey, progressing onwards and expanding outwards to become a multiplanetary species—as Earth becomes a destination, as well as a point of origin. I committed my life purpose to the singular objective of ensuring that integrity, balance and ethical responsibility hold paramount importance as priorities, in both scientific research and in principal government leadership, as we're collectively propelled forwards as a species. With unprecedented leaps and bounds of progress in our scientific understanding—enabled by the development of converging and expanding exponential technologies—newfound, unexpected discoveries await just over the horizon. Rapid advances in fields such as artificial intelligence, biotechnology, molecular nanotechnology, neuroscience, renewable energy, spaceflight, supercomputing and quantum technologies—each enabled by the rapid technological progress of Moore’s Law doublings in computer processing power, speed and complexity—will soon converge to confer radical changes to our society over coming decades, as we move forward in the collective transition towards the dawn of a post-scarcity economy. The future is unbounded. The responsibility falls upon us to ensure that its limitless potential is filled with dreams of hope, happiness, freedom and fulfillment.

I began my scientific career at a Deep Future, multidisciplinary research institute located in the tranquil, secluded forests just outside Brussels, Belgium,

Starlab Discovery Channel Special

Our research institute, cofounded by MIT Media Lab founder Nicholas Negroponte and established in partnership with MIT, Oxford and Ghent, was created as a "Noah's Ark" to bring together the world's most brilliant and creative scientists to work on far-ranging projects with the potential to hold a profound and positive impact on future generations.

Our artificial intelligence project at the lab was recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records in 2001 as the "World's Most Complex Artificial Brain." I lived and worked at the institute, taking up research collaborations with the principal scientists of our NASA and USAF-sponsored time travel division—profiled in the above Discovery Channel Special—in work that was widely published, featured in a Discover Magazine cover story, and continues to this day: we just completed a chapter contribution to a Springer academic volume on 'Spacetime from Quantum Topology.'

When the laboratory came up short on research grants, I personally went to the President himself to request $1M in additional budget from funds allocated through Clinton's 2001 National Nanotechnology Initiative. For my contributions to the program, I was selected by the US government as one of three graduate students most likely to impact the future of the field, sponsored to attend conferences and travel to national agency headquarters outside Washington, DC, attended the World Technology Summit in London, was an invited delegate to the French Sénat to provide testimony on the future of technology and how it will transform our lives over coming decades, and more.

That was my first job out of college. In the aftermath of the September 11 attacks, I volunteered to serve as Chairman for a UN Disarmament and International Security Committee, leading over 500 diplomats to address and combat the threats of international terrorism, global and regional nuclear security, and information warfare. My Chair Report to the General Assembly on the promise and perils posed by the rapid acceleration of unpredictable advances in converging technologies was read by the UN Secretary General, by National Security Advisors, at Presidential and Prime Minister's offices around the world, was instrumental in influencing Congressional policy developments and in establishing the foundation for US Cyber Command, and was subsequently recognized with the 2004 Award for Outstanding Achievement in Government Policy.

That's when things started to get exciting.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
* Dashing out in a speedboat through the choppy waters of the Mekong Delta, surrounded by the overwhelming sights, sounds, smells and textures of a lush tropical rainforest, the air dripping with humidity, or Zooming and veering on Vespa scooters through the ridiculously chaotic midnight Saigon traffic;

* Relaxing in a quiet Boracay beach villa under a full moon, the sand underneath as milky white, soft and smooth as talcum powder, as it glides like silk and caresses between your toes;

* Soaking up the fresh, misty mountain air and the idyllic scenery of Da Lat, relaxing on a jungle beach to the soothing, rhythmic songs of the ocean as waves lap up on the shore, or motorcycling on sport bikes along cliffside jungle highways, racing along the coastline of Na Trang;

* Out at sea, nighttime squid hunting in a bangka, a three-meter native Polynesian canoe, gliding across the deep, dark waters between two remote tropical islands, drifting across the surface in stillness and silence. Freshly caught squid shimmer and shift with glistening, vibrant hues, the full spectrum of the rainbow glimmering under their membranous skin, liquid lines of chameleon color.

With no moon, and no light above, save for the twinkle of distant starlight, two distant lightning storms on the East and West horizons are an intense contrast to the voids above and below. No land as far as the eyes can see. Complete blackness blankets the waters beneath, with exception of the phosphorescent plankton, which flash and glimmer like sparks as the canoe glides silently through the waters, or when you softly stir the waters with your the cool caress of the back of your hand. The dividing line between jet black sea and black sky is wholly absent, so there's a sense of leisurely drifting through deep outer space nebulae—a synaesthetic, psychedelic experience, almost akin to sensory deprivation.

The luminous arms of the Milky Way, usually only a faint trace across the sky when enveloped in the chaos and cacophony of pachinko parlor-laced urban climes, still a faint trace even from deep out in the meadows of a distant countryside—shine as bright as Times Square overhead. An experience beyond words, evocative of the distinctive hallmark signatures called to mind through the end sequences of Contact, or in Kubrick's 2001.

* Venturing out in the darkness, harpoon fishing in shallow, nighttime coastal waters, six meters deep, with nothing but a gas lamp hanging outwards over the front of the canoe. Nighttime snorkeling through reefs, surrounded by countless species of sea life and coral―cliffs and caves, flora and fauna, schools of fish, from tiny as needles, to larger than a great dane―millions of intertwined species, an interplay of flourishing ecosystems, locked together in singular symbiosis;

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're a dreamer, a change innovator. A spark, a spotlight or catalyst. You're ready to set out to make a profound and positive difference in the world―or you already have.

You can answer the following questions in the resounding affirmative.

Have you never been satisfied to work on anything less than projects with the potential to create a profound and positive impact on the future of humanity? Have you always imagined yourself with so much to give to the world―and to the universe―that you want to be there as the primary confidante and lifeline of support for a partner who has that much to give to others, to your family, and to you alone?

Can you prevail, triumph and flourish through challenging, sometimes adventurous, even dangerous situations? Are you as comfortable being interviewed on Oprah and CNN as going out for a stroll to the local bakery? Are you ready to come prepared with a formal dress for the Presidential Inaugural Ball—and another for the inner circle of the Oval Office?

Where do you see yourself in 20 years? Imagine the best of your ideals have been realized. You've accomplished everything you've set out to do, and achieved many of your dreams. Where are you, what are you doing? What's next?
