Graduated from the University of Florida Fruit Crops in 1975
Worked for Kendall Foods, Brooks Tropicals, Goya Dominican Republic, and Possum Trot Tropical Fruit Nursery as well as consulting in many countries in this hemisphere on farm and horticulture maters.
After hurricane Andrew I started to farm in a minimalist fashion using few inputs and organic in nature. I grow over 300 different fruits, spices, beverages, timbers, dye, poison, medicinal, and fiber tropical trees on the farm.
I enjoy cooking and making wines from the wealth of my farm's products.
