Growing up he had two lazy eyes, which led to unflattering glasses meaning he’d face his fair share of bullying. This would lead to poor self-esteem and insecurity that stayed with him into adulthood. When he finally found his place and purpose in the workplace, it came to an end and lead to a lot of frustration, when the company decided to discontinue funding his projects. Now he speaks to students about overcoming bullying, and is the founder of Farm Brigge, helping farmers run profitable and sustainable operations through applying lean farming principles.
