Jamie Metzl is a man of many titles and distinctions: he is a novelist, blogger, futurist, member of the Council on Foreign Relations and former White House and Aspen Institute Crown Fellow, with a Ph.D. in Asian history from Oxford, a JD from Harvard Law School, and a magna cum laude Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Brown University. As an expert in geopolitics and biotechnology who currently serves as a Senior Fellow of the Atlantic Council, Jamie’s syndicated columns and regular television appearances have been fixtures of the international conversation about Asian economic and political issues.
Jamie has also authored multiple novels, including The Depths of The Sea and Genesis Code, which deal with issues of human genetic enhancement in the context of a future US-China rivalry. His new novel, Eternal Sonata, explores issues relating to extreme human life extension.
As if this panoply of impressive achievements wasn’t enough to characterize Metzl as contemporary Renaissance man, he has also completed thirteen Ironman triathalons, twenty-nine marathons, and twelve ultramarathons.
