Dylan co-founded Art of the float in 2013 as a blog which has grown into a pillar of the float community delivering a podcast, float media content, a financial modeler and more.

Before starting his center, Drew worked for the Department of Social Services and eventually Juvenile Probation. This delivered an education on how to act with all types of people representing different socio-economic backgrounds. This is where Drew fell in love with people, interacting with people, and a curiosity about what makes people do the things they do. Drew started listening to the Art of the Float podcast without knowing he would open a center. Later he became a consulting client as he planned and built out his own center. Drew is as passionate about floating as he is about martial arts where he has over 9 years training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, 4 years of MMA experience, and has recently taken on the new challenge of starting all over as the new guy in Muay Thai.
