Description:Grew up gardening on family land. Began working as an ornamental gardener at 16. Earned a Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University of Washington, focusing studies on plant ecophysiology, ecosystem function, and agriculture. Spent one year working as an intern on small certified organic farm (2 acres of row crops in intense cultivation), invited back to manage the farm for my second year. While managing transitioned the cultivated area to a no-till system, reducing damage to local ecology while still exceeding all budget and production goals. Not currently farming, focusing energy on land search to begin my own farm.
