Current Occupation: 
Co-Founder, Young Mountain Tea

We at Young Mountain Tea are working to build a new Indian tea region in partnership with remote Himalayan communities.. Our company started when I was working with small farmers on the border between India and Nepal. We struck a deal – if local farmers grew tea, I would start a company in the US to sell it. Soon after I headed back to Oregon and setup Young Mountain Tea, which we named in tribute to the young, rising Himalayas. You can learn more about our teas and our work to create dignified rural livelihoods at youngmountaintea.com.
