He is very successful at his art. His wife is also an artist, she does textile arts and is world renowned for her work. They live in a quirky off-grid compound in the boonies that he built out of scrap metal. He has a 2500 square foot shop that he has filled with machinery, all run off of solar power (he does have a 10 kW generator just in case). He is an avid hunter with a freezer full of wild game and a world traveler but at the same time as humble as they come. I have met some of the most interesting people in the world at his parties.
Best friend I have ever had.
