A Bit About Me

I am the CEO and co-founder Ecovative. I use biology to create disruptive solutions that are good for people and the planet. I have evangelized a strategy of bio-adaption around the world, including presentations at TED Global, PopTech, and The World Economic Forum in Davos.

I studied at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute where I received dual degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Innovation & Design. For the 18 years prior, I studied agriculture and farming through hands on learning at my family farm in central Vermont.
