My areas of expertise include biohacking, human augmentation and the impact of technology on our lives. I always offer a customized webinar, so that your organization really benefits from my contribution.
In my online sessions, I provide an overview of the most important developments, opportunities, challenges and ethical dilemmas. My approach is pragmatic, with lots of concrete examples and interaction with the participants.
Webinar sessions could be valuable for your own employees, for (potential) customers or as an online event for external parties. These are some examples:
- gave an online keynote on the future of healthcare for employees of a major Dutch retailer;
- conducted a webinar on genetic modification for members of a health insurance company’s innovation lab;
- organized a session on Instagram Live about biohacking for Tetem Art Space;
- participated in an interactive session on human enhancement for Future Based, a platform for ethics and philosophy.
- gave a talk about human augmentation for the conference Brave New World;
- gave a talk about superhumans for the conference Biohackers Assemble.
My digital sessions have a pragmatic approach. I always give many concrete examples based on recent developments, stimulate the audience’s imagination with science fiction, and share personal anecdotes from my experiences as a biohacker. Interaction with the audience is very important to me, and there are questions and quizzes throughout the session. The duration of a webinar is generally between 30 and 45 minutes.
The preparation consists of an intake and going through my concept presentation together. Afterwards, I plan an online meeting with the client to evaluate the webinar.
I prefer to work with Zoom, but I can also use other webinar tools (such as Microsoft Teams, Instagram Live and Jitsi Meet). I think the most important thing is to look for interaction with the participants. I have experience with various online working methods, from putting forward propositions, a Q&A and break-out rooms. I present myself from a quiet room with a good internet connection and a high-quality microphone.
You can also book me for a keynote in VR. My agency is Beemup.

As a biohacker, I have been doing all kinds of experiments with wearables, gadgets and other new technology for years. In addition, I draw on my knowledge of 100+ interviews for my podcast and YouTube channel with leading scientists, philosophers and experts in the fields of biotechnology, artificial intelligence, genetics, human enhancement, and much more.
I continuously keep up to date with the latest developments by reading professional literature, the latest news and relevant books on these themes. I also write articles on this website and in 2020 I wrote the books Future Humans: the impact of biohacking and Supermens (in Dutch) at Bot Uitgevers.
