Sounds to me like he is trying to assert his dominance over you and everyone around you.

I would perhaps try distraction techniques. If you notice he's about to start getting "bitey" then grab a toy and distract him with it and give him a ton of praise when he chews on the toy and not you.
You could also start doing target and clicker training to give him an outlet and to get him a bit engaged mentally.
