He wrote a theoretical article that caught the eye of some people in the Pentagon and the next thing you knew he was whisked away into work as a defense analyst specializing in out-of-box thinking. He still contracts for the Pentagon but does sessions and concerts with various concerns in the music industry. He's an extremely intelligent guy.
