I began working for Pacific Botanicals over 20 years ago and had little knowledge of organic agriculture etc., but knew intrinsically what an important role this paradigm could play in changing our planet for the better. I’ve always felt close to and cared deeply for nature, and am happiest outdoors. I have a loving wife, Dori, our Quality Manager here, and two beautiful daughters India, and Autumn Jade that I am very proud of. My favorite botanicals are oats, California poppy, skullcap and red root.

I began working for Pacific Botanicals in 1998 when I was drawn to the work being done at the farm. I started out working in the Greenhouses learning about the propagation of herbs. Through the years I have enjoyed learning many aspects of the business including seed harvesting, fresh herb coordinating, customer service, accounting and quality assurance. My current role as QC Manager allows me to be a part of the greater team in assuring quality herbs and quality processes for our customers. One of the aspects that I have enjoyed most about my employment here at Pacific Botanicals is the people that I get to work with, both co-workers and the wonderful customers that I have gotten to know through the years. Favorite Botanicals: Nettles, sea veggie powder, angelica, Baikal skullcap, passionflower.
