“I used to look out the car window on the 101 freeway in Oxnard, California (near where I grew up), watching people in the strawberry fields picking berries as we drove by. It looked like hard work, all those people bent over. I figured there was no way I wanted to be involved in agriculture if that was what you did every day. From that one image in my mind, I thought I knew about produce. I had no idea.”
“As a young child, my grandmother had a garden in our backyard and while she was cooking, she would ask me to go pick jalapenos, tomatoes, and squash. That garden made a big impression on me and my life. I believe that is where my passion for food and fellowship developed. On Sundays our family would gather at my grandparents’ home to eat and laugh. I believe that no matter what happens in life there is no better feeling than gathering around the dinner table with your family and friends.”
