He presented six papers at the prestigious MIT Abduction Study Conference in Boston in 1992. His published papers have brought him international recognition and speaking invitations on five continents. He has presented at conferences from Australia to England, on national and international radio, television, and film documentaries. He has created and produced eleven research DVDs since 1996.

Born in Belgium, Manuel has had a lifelong interest in all matters extraterrestrial. In 1994 he decided to quit a career as a lawyer and academic researcher (with teaching assignment), and started a consulting company. This also offered him the opportunity to follow his passion and dedicate more time to extraterrestrial research.
After a course in regression therapy, he began to investigate abduction and contact cases. He also started sharing information with other researchers and regression therapists on an informal basis, and centralized that information in a database, called the Hyperbase. While it started as a database for people who work with abductees, this project has over the years crystallized into a valuable asset for exopolitical research, as well. It can be found at http://manuel.sekmeth.com/hb7.
In 2008 work on the Hyperbase was halted. The Exopaedia is its successor, and Manuel also is the driving force behind the Exopaedia.
Apart from that,

  • he is a member of Faculty (Lecturer), and of the Advisory Board of the Exopolitics Institute,
  • he is country director for South Africa at the Exopolitics Institute,
  • he is a member of the Advisory Board of the Exopolitics Journal,
  • he also is the founder of Exopolitics South Africa, and has been running it since its inception in 2006. As such he is also a member of the Exopolitics World Network,
  • he is co-administrator and co-owner of The OutPost Forum,
  • he is a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Abduction-Encounter Research (JAR Magazine).

Andrew is from the UK originally (born 1969) and started having contact and sighting experiences (involuntary) from around the age of 6. There were approximately 5 events he was involved in up until the age of about 15, of which a regression (Hong Kong, 2015) was needed to really remember what took place. In 1987 Andrew emigrated to the USA and was there until 2009. He then relocated to Shanghai, China. After one year, he moved to Shenzhen, China which is on the border of Hong Kong. During his time on the HK border he began to get more interested in the UFO and ET phenomena as well as trying to understand what his past experiences were about. During his research he discovered Dr. Michael Salla’s Exopolitics Institute and enrolled as a student, receiving his certificate in August 2015. He has engaged in three CE-5 events with a few spectacular results during several expeditions to the USA (Sedona, Arizona). In November 2015 Andrew will relocate to the Scottish Borders and will continue his Exopolitics education through earning the full diploma and establishing a local CE-5 group and potentially a contactee/abductee group (based in Scotland and/or Northern England) as well as being involved in JAR magazine.
