Great, perceptive questions

Eric Skwarczynski interviewed me recently on the Build Your Network show. His questions were very probing, he showed a great deal of interest in how i came to build this interesting company OriginClear, and where we are going from there to create a revolution in how water is cleaned in the world. Thank you for a fine interview and I look forward to the publication soon!
