What excites you about your work and the work of CAE?
As supply chain networks in our food system continue to trend starkly in favor of consolidation, I see our work at CAE Farm Connex as a unique opportunity to disrupt this increasingly exclusive, economic juggernaut. By providing our smaller producers access to safe, reliable and robust aggregation & distribution capacity, we strive to bolster a crucial service gap between farms and 'fridges throughout the state. A wee revolutionary act, indeed! It sure doesn't hurt that I get to work alongside some truly gifted and keenly dedicated colleagues while doing it, either. :)
What brings you joy (work or otherwise)?
So, what brings me joy? Ideas, possibilities and a good story! It can take almost any form - be it music, art, books, movies, jokes, or a simple conversation at the bus stop, however the theme is consistent: "The universe is a wild place, and being a human is weird."
Runners up: Dogs and plants.
What brings you hope (work or otherwise)?
Hm. Hope can be a funny and elusive thing. But the cool thing about it is that regardless of whether or not we can see or feel it, it's always there - like a plucky little dandelion just waiting to push through a crack in the pavement.
