Personal

I have expertise in many different farming, handling, and processing systems including input manufacturing. As a co-founder of OMRI, I developed inspection techniques for the evaluation of inputs. I have experience collecting crop, soil, and input samples for laboratory analysis. I've also audited large-scale operations. Especially interested in consulting input inspections.
