Founder & Chairman at Blue Planet Foundation
I am a Dutch-born entrepreneur and clean energy visionary who has dedicated the past decade of my career to the research, development, advocacy and implementation of renewable energy sources in my adopted home of Hawaii. More recently, I have been a leading global advocate for space exploration as the Chairman of the Pacific International Space Center for Exploration Systems and the founder of the International MoonBase Alliance, a group dedicated to building the first colony on the moon. I spent my early career in Japan as a video game developer and publisher, gaining distinction for producing the country’s first major role-playing game, The Black Onyx. I then went on to revolutionize the video game industry by securing the rights for the blockbuster Tetris, which 30 years later remains a bestseller and global icon of gaming culture. Follow me on my journey to create a world in which humanity and nature can live in harmony.
