Tom Martin graduated with a degree in Mechanical Engineering from the California Maritime Academy in 2004. Since then, he has worked as a Mechanical Engineer in several capacities, his favorite of these endeavors having been Chief Engineer for 4 years on a scientific research vessel. Though he loved his work, his outside interests always drew him towards looking for more innovative ways of using his Engineering knowledge.
Tom’s fascination with longevity research began just after graduating from college, which after some time became not just a field of passive study, but a personal crusade. This eventually led him to creating a laboratory in 2012 with the sole purpose of producing Carbon 60 Olive Oil, both for personal experimentation, and with the idea of encouraging research by making it accessible to others with similar passions for expanding lifetimes.
