What is your role at the Store?

I work on the grocery team, and I’ve been here since January.

What is your current favorite product at the Store?

My favorite product would have to be any of the Jasper Hill cheeses. The Willoughby and clothbound Cabot are too good for words to express.

When you’re not at the Farm Store, what do you do?

I’m an avid naturalist and often spend my time identifying local flora and fauna. I work seasonal jobs banding birds as well so I’m mainly a bird guy. I work on scientific studies collecting data, and we capture birds to take measurements and put an aluminum band around their leg with an ID number to be able to identify the individual. Fun work for sure!

If you were a fruit or vegetable, what would you be?

I would be a ramp leaf because I enjoy foraging for wild foods and advocate for sustainable harvest.

 If you could snap your fingers and solve one of the challenges of our time, what would it be and why?

If I could solve one issue with the snap of my fingers, it would be environmental injustice. Everyone should have access to healthy food, safe housing, and clean water and air.
