If you like to smile, you should meet White Marriott! Also known as the NH Balloon Man, you can find him entertaining children and adults with his fun and unique business model. He’s got swords, flowers, looney tunes, and a variety of hats that include rainbows, ponies, and hearts.

While living in Texas, White was part of the Ron Paul grassroots movement in Houston and was always liberty leaning.  He first heard about Free State Project through FTL after asking someone with a sign that read "Libertarians <3 guns too!" for Libertarian podcast suggestions.  He then came to visit New Hampshire for our first annual Liberty Forum in 2007 and finally made his move in 2009. Since then he's been an excellent friend and neighbor, always willing to help out with a move or a ride somewhere. But where White really shines is by bringing smiles to everyone’s face with his fabulous balloon creations!

White is a true entrepreneur who took his talents and created a niche for himself in New Hampshire. What a fun way to make money, I say! You can find him at kids parties, festivals, and even the railway. Can you imagine going up and down the fabulous White Mountains with it’s amazing granite boulders and pines, then who do you see coming down the aisle? Why it’s the NH Balloon Man!  Bringing those aforementioned smiles to everyone with his creativity and style.

White brings the community together with fun and humor, one smile at a time. His generosity and affection shows in his work and we’re glad he’s here! Check out his website to see a gallery of his work and prepared to be amazed!
