Hi! I’m currently living in (City), where I work at (Work Place) doing (Job Title). When I’m not working I like to (Hobby), (Interest) and (Passion). Connect with me!
I co-founded the Pink Army Cooperative. We're working to crowdsource cancer therapies and make a kickass automated process that can churn out state-of-the-art custom treatments for one person at a time. Cancer's sneaky, but no match for an army of cancer ninjas!
As faculty at Singularity University, I speak about the exponential growth of biotechnologies and what this means to the world. The university is based at the NASA Ames research center in California and the programs are often described as "mind-blowing".
I look at cells as computers and DNA as a programming language. I advocate open source biotech and DIYbio and encourage young people to compete in iGEM or Biomod to hone their skill and explore their interests. Autodesk and I are learning how their software can be used for building living things at the molecular level and with 3D bio-printers.
My days consist of speaking, networking, and catalyzing activity in biotechnology. I'm also interested in flow states and the neurobiology thereof (higher order biotechnology, really), consciousness and AI, and the universe, which, like Asimov, I suspect is some sort of computer.
If you are interested in having me speak or brainstorm with your group, please contact me at ahessel (at) gmail.com. I tend to avoid phones since they are not a globally useful network.
