He has been walking the talk since he was 12 years old, drinking wheat grass shots and carrot juice. He spent 3 fulfilling years working on an organic farm as well as 10 years in the natural food industry. He was born and grew up in Minnesota, which explains his strong work ethic! He lived in Seattle (Go Hawks!) for a number of years, and moved to South Lake Tahoe in the fall of 2010 and is happy to call paradise his home.
