I studied electrical engineering at secondary vocational level. So how did I wind up in the greenhouse? Well, it's just something that crossed my path. In 1986 I was at a stage in my life when I had to make a choice. I had helped my father pick tomatoes, but it didn't feel right for me. At the time, bell peppers were a very profitable crop, so when my father said he wanted to make a change, I didn't have to think any longer.
