Preston Pysh Wiki/Bio And Background

Preston Pysh’s LinkedIn profile states that he graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point in 2003 with a Bachelor of Science in Aerospace Engineering. In 2004, he completed Army Aviation Flight School, becoming qualified to operate AH-64D Apache, OH-58A/C, and TH-67 helicopters.

Pysh has served in the United States military before becoming an internet entrepreneur. The description of Pysh’s 2010 book The Diary of a West Point Cadet – where he recounts his military experience – reads:

After flight training, Preston was assigned to the 1-2 Attack Aviation Battalion at Camp Eagle, South Korea. While stationed in Korea, he worked as an Attack Platoon Leader, Battalion Adjutant, and Assistant Operations Officer.

Upon completion of his first overseas tour of duty, Preston attended the Military Intelligence Captain’s Career Course at Fort Huachuca, Arizona, and was then stationed at Fort Campbell, Kentucky.

Once assigned to the 101st Airborne Division, he served as the Aviation Operations Battle Captain in Operation Enduring Freedom IX in Bagram Afghanistan. Following a successful combat deployment, Preston was then assigned as the A Company, 1-101st AH-64D Apache Attack Helicopter Company Commander during a second year deployment for Operation Enduring Freedom X-XI. Preston’s company was directly responsible for the aerial security of the prominent Operation Dragon Strike mission in Kandahar city.

After his military service, Pysh became interested in investing, as well as in the activity of American investor Warren Buffett. In January 2010, Pysh founded The Pylon Holding Company – a company through which he manages his own portfolio, according to his Bitcoin Fundamentals podcast bio.

In 2012, Pysh published Warren Buffett’s 3 Favorite Books – a book that covers Buffett’s investing techniques, among other things.

In 2013, Preston Pysh met Danish author and investor Stig Brodersen after the latter had come across Pysh’s website while researching the investment career of Warren Buffett.

In 2014, inspired by entrepreneur and blogger Pat Flynn’s podcast, Pysh suggested that he and Brodersen launch their own podcast.

In September 2014, Pysh and Brodersen co-founded The Investor’s Podcast (TIP).

In 2018, Pysh graduated from the Johns Hopkins University with an M.B.A. (Master of Business Administration), Banking and Finance.

As a Bitcoin and cryptocurrency proponent, Pysh is the host of the Bitcoin Fundamentals podcast (part of TIP). In 2020, The Daily Hodl wrote that Pysh believed that Bitcoin’s price could reach $300,000.
