In 2012, I was working in consulting and wanted to start a sports blog. There were enough blogs about watching sports, so I became really interested in things like smart watches and how they can help athletes improve.
After about three years, my blog gained traction and I started getting questions from healthcare organizations about what patients can do with data and what wearables are useful in managing health.
In time, I was lucky enough to turn my hobby into my work. I give a lot of webinars and keynotes to businesses and governments on human augmentation – how we can use science and technology to not only measure but upgrade the human body.
