Founder & President
Stefan switched from smoking to vaping over 3 years ago and has been a vocal and active supporter and advocate for vapor products and is frequently seen testifying in front of state and local legislators and policy makers.
Outside of Stefan’s legislative and PR efforts, including the creation of the #notblowingsmoke website and movement, he is mostly known for working out of the world’s most famous home office.
Prior to dedicating all his time to vaping advocacy he was a software engineer who started his first business at the age of 18 and for over 25 years has been involved in developing 3D computer graphics and animation software.
Stefan has been featured in many articles and interviews on the subject of vapor products, including professor Stanton Glantz’ Tobacco Control blog at the University of California, San Francisco.
