In recent years, Lorenzo Hagerty has spent his time writing, podcasting, blogging, producing a lecture series, speaking at events, and being a grandfather. His professional career is as diverse as they come: attorney, consultant to Fortune 500 companies, electrical engineer, hot air balloon pilot, Internet/Java promoter, motivational speaker, movie stuntman, multimedia software developer, Naval officer, and technical writer. Hagerty was president of Success, Inc., which provided sales training and network marketing courses to other companies, and he founded Dynasty Computer Corporation, which sold home computers even before IBM did. He is an active member of the international corporation DigitalSpace, which designs virtual worlds for industrial engineering, education, and the public good.
Hagerty is perhaps best known as the congenial host of the Psychedelic Salon, a regular podcast series showcasing interviews, lectures, and assorted additional audio sources that feature some of the brightest, most creative individuals from the community of folks interested in psychoactives. He is the organizer of the Palenque Norte theme camp at Burning Man, dedicated to translocating the vibe from the Entheobotany seminars at the Chan Kah hotel in Mexico onto the dusty realm of Black Rock City.
