Gabriel Rothblatt

Gabriel Rothblatt, a member of the IEET Advisory Board, was born in Washington, D.C. on the 100th anniversary of Robert Goddard to Martine Rothblatt and Bina Aspen. Gabriel, a second generation Libra, was destined to dream of the stars. As a child, he aspired to be the first Governor of one of Gerard O’Niell’s ‘The High Frontier’ type colonies. As an adult he proclaims himself a professional amateur, as well as a futurist and political philosopher.

In 2004 Gabriel graduated from the University of Vermont with a B.A. in Political Science and became a father. He now has four kids and is a Cub Scout Leader, Business Advocate, Ambassador for The Seasteading Institute, a member of the Board of Directors for Terasem Movement Incorporated and the Lifeboat Foundations Futurist Board of Advisors. He is a former US Congressional Candidate in FL-8, the Space Coast of Florida.
