Hello, my name is Jesse Hull. I work with my partner, Molly Stanek, focusing on urban farming and aquaponic food production systems as 'Imagine Aquaponics' (www.imagineaquaponics.com). Together we endeavor to establish commercial sites in strategic areas of the US, with the goal of revitalizing communities, strengthening national food security, and making urban food deserts a thing of the past. I have been heavily involved in hydroponics/hydro-organics, bio-filtration, horticultural lighting, and greenhouse cultivation for 20 years, and have been integrating those skill sets in aquaponics for nearly 4 years. From 2009-2011, I held the position of Director of Horticulture, Research and Development at Sweet Water Organics in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. My other background is in ceramic chemistry (www.wisemanmariestudios.com), and I worked as a ceramic artist/chemist, creating wheel-thrown & altered porcelain for 14 years.
