Back in 2017 at the New Worlds conference, I had the chance to meet and talk to Henk Brouwer Rogers, a visionary entrepreneur, known in the space industry as the man who wants to put a Moon base in Hawaii. I have been following his path on social media since, and last year Alexis Aiono and I had the opportunity of interviewing him for Maximum Jailbreak. This article highlights our talk, and showcases a little about this extraordinary man, his life path, and how it took him from Tetris, to the Moon.
Henk Rogers is historically known as the man who brought Tetris into our lives, but his life path goes beyond that. Born in the Netherlands but raised in New York during his adolescence, Henk went on to study Computer Sciences at the University of Hawai’i, then later moved to Japan where he began to work in the video game industry.
