After studying composting and graduating with a degree in Environmental Studies from Central College he joined equipment manufacturer Vermeer Corporation in Pella, Iowa as a product specialist within the recycling division. Traveling about 25 weeks a year he has been roaming North America and beyond gaining a wealth of knowledge and helping organizations setup compost facilities, manufacture mulch, clear land, and produce biofuels. He has worked with some of the largest compost operations helping them improve equipment performance and learn how their operations can best utilize Vermeer's product. Understanding the unique challenges each operation faces is also central to his work in order to share and improve others as he travels throughout North America.
