Dylan was born in Saranac Lake, New York, a few miles from where the Americans triumphed over the Russians in the “Miracle on Ice” during the 1980 Olympics. He’s now a nomadic road warrior constantly traveling around the country, primarily residing in New York City, Louisiana, California and Chicago.

Dylan is partner and co-founder of a Louisiana-based manufacturer that integrates systems to grow food, purify water, produce solar electricity, establish wireless connectivity, create jobs and provide essential community services. This venture was inspired by US combat veterans who described plug and play integration of housing, food, power and water systems as fundamental to global security.

Known by his strong voice for economic justice on Bloomberg and NBC, Dylan now serves as Chief Skeptic at Tastytrade and Advisor to CyndX. He speaks out daily for transparency, integrity, choice and aligned interests as a commentator, film producer, and author of New York Times Best-Seller “Greedy Bastards.”

Dylan advocates for student-debt reform, veteran employment, food and water security, drug decriminalization, fair economic opportunity and the recognition of money in politics as the root cause of our nation’s challenges. Despite these challenges, Dylan is an optimist who sees the current crisis as a potent opportunity to dramatically transform society for the benefit of all.

Dylan is a passionate fighter for the best in all of us, and an occasional paddle-boarder.



Dylan is working with combat veterans on key resource systems to facilitate transformation by confronting climate chaos and social conflict.

Their mission is to equip the world with standardized, portable tools for basic resource production, and to establish strong communities and meaningful work for all people.


It doesn’t matter what the issue is; in American politics money is the root of all evil. I’m going to abandon the bought congress, like Teddy Roosevelt did. I am going to go to the people of the the United States.
