About Trevor

I am a well rounded technologist versed in front end development, data science with python, SEO/marketing, and design. I have built many web applications at an enterprise level and also created several projects on the side.

Right now I am doing initial research and learning in the areas of vertical farming, Internet of Things, and backend development. On top of that, I'm looking for someone who wants to help me make my dream a reality.

What if you could walk over to your food-wall every time you needed fresh vegetables and simply cut it off of the stock? My goal is to create a vertical farming system for homes and restaurants that requires planting and harvesting only. Lighting, water flow, and nutrient application are all automated so all you have to do is plant seeds, wait 10 to 30 days, and throw it in your pan.

My strategy is to do installations in restaurants that are initially not fully automated, but as we learn and grow in revenue, develop more and more automations until it is truly as simple as described. The food-wall needs to and will be beautiful. It will add greenery and oxygen to a room, and be as attractive as it is useful.

If this sounds exciting to you, please contact me. I am location independent so that should not be a concern. I'm primarily looking for someone with hydroponic or farming experience, or someone with experience with hardware.

I'm currently doing a vertical farming internship to get up to speed and also hacking with React for the interface and Raspberry Pi for the IOT. I don't have pesky employment to get in the way :)
