Ninja Warrior and Clean Energy Visionary
Troy has founded 2 successful clean energy companies in the United States: TradeWind Energy in 1998 (over $3 Billion of projects installed to date; Troy sold it in 2004) and Pristine Sun shortly thereafter (over 300 solar projects installed in 8 states with a 10 GW pipeline in development; he sold ~90% of the company's divisions in 2016-17 to buyers for over $100 Million including assumption of liabilities by the buyers).
Troy is an aspiring ninja warrior, having been a course tester for NBC's American Ninja Warrior (e.g. in Kansas City for 2017's Season 9), a regular contestant in many National Ninja League competitions, Wolfpack Ninja Tours and other ninja competitions. He started training in November 2016. Despite his age (50 years old as of Nov '17), he's become a proficient ninja due to his determination and consistent training, as well as his background in gymnastics, yoga, competitive track, and cheerleading (led his 1990 squad as captain to be National Champions in collegiate competitive cheerleading).
Today Troy remains active in solar project development as a partner and significant investor in Cratus Energy of Industry Capital.
Troy has also funded various other clean energy projects & companies since selling Pristine Sun.
Troy is a co-inventor on 11 patents pending on floating solar technology (FloatoRack) which can bring solar closer to cities (on wastewater ponds, lakes, seas & oceans).
Troy is the lead inventor on super high-speed & low-cost boring/tunneling technology with Red Gopher Corporation, which can connect the cities of the world to low-cost solar & wind resources in rural areas via subsurface power lines.
