It’s ya boi. Lots of quotes from people who know him. Here’s a few favourites:

I remember at one point he was walking around the office at nine o’clock at night, and he was pissed off that there weren’t enough engineers in their cubicles. At nine o’clock at night. I would try and occasionally take weekends off, and Elon would be in the office and he’d call me up and have some reason as to why I needed to come in to help him on something. I think he just wanted me in the office on the weekend.
I got married during the lead up to the first ever Falcon 1 launch. Elon did not take that well – he did not think that was a good reason for me to be missing.
