"I want to make a difference... I want to make a freaking difference. I want to hopefully be known as somebody that took the risk to create a better life – to force some change. To forge a better way. There's a better way to do this."

Our founder, Clay Shannon, lacks no vision when it comes to making this world a better place to live for future generations. It's true; we don't have all the answers – sustainability is an ongoing project. We're ok with that. If that resonates with you; if you agree that someone has to put in the work, then stick around, because exciting things are on the horizon. 🥂
