On the side he is a serial entrepreneur who launched has launched several companies. One company provided LED taillights for 1940’s street rods, and this year launched Tactical Woodgas Inc that manufactures wood gasifiers scaled for home generators.

For fun he fabricates Sand Rails and is an active ham radio operator. He has also been listening to TSP for about 6 years at this point and is a life long prepper.
