Navy Seal Michael Olschan, on a mission to protect a top-secret experiment in the North Pacific Gyre, is blasted into the polluted sea. He awakens to find himself changed — plastics, glass and metals are permanently embedded in his body. A new eco-warrior, Vortex Man, is born.
As he gradually learns to control them, Vortex Man can transform the plastic and metals embedded in his body, as well as those around him. Creating weapons, shields, modes of transportation, or anything else he can imagine.
From a very young age, Isaac Shweky has been an avid environmentalist, devoting his personal and professional life to furthering his goal of building a sustainable society. Through the Vortex Universe, he hopes to leave a lasting legacy and is committed to changing the way we as humans think about our disposable society.

Chief Financial Officer
Kelly Jackson started playing with numbers right out of high school when she worked as a Cashier at a local automobile dealership. Her strength in finance-related activities was recognized by leadership, and she quickly moved up the ladder from Cashier to Office Manager where she ran the entire back office for the dealership. That experience catapulted her into her next role of Controller at a multi-franchise dealership in Hartford, CT, where she continued to build her resume in corporate finance. In 2002, Kelly was hired as VP of Finance to handle the finances for a local entrepreneur’s seven (7) companies. There she managed all aspects of bookkeeping, tax reporting, payroll, and more. Kelly is a master at financial organization, creating and managing budgets, and keeping organizations financially sound.
Although Kelly loves all things finance, her real passion lies with animals. She has a menagerie of species as pets and a roster of frequent backyard visitors (including opossums, bunnies, bears, and foxes, just to name a few) that she adores watching. Kelly’s devotion to animals has led her to volunteer at several non-profits that support the protection and health of both domesticated pets and animals in the wild. Kelly’s dream is to swim with dolphins and sea turtles.
