After starting several companies and then working to make access to healthy, clean-ingredient list food easier, Skyler set his focus on emergency preparedness.

Skyler is most passionate about using The Earthquake Bag as a platform to both encourage people to do the responsible thing for their family, while also helping support those who could have never planned for the disaster that hit them.
