When not working diligently to get out the word about the benefits of drinking ZenMatcha, he might be found pursuing his passions in the mountains and rivers around Sun Valley. Winters are spent skinning up mountains for some fresh backcountry tracks, and summers are a jumble of climbing local mountains, mountain biking, and fly fishing some of the world’s best fly fishing opportunities.

Leading the ever-busy LA lifestyle, Jennifer’s love and commitment to ZenMatcha comes from an understanding of the importance of finding healthy focus & zen in the day-to-day rush of the urban jumble.  Having developed a deep love of all things Japanese in her youth she is eager to help share something as significant as matcha with the world. In her spare time she finds joy in the weird and wonderful, constantly seeking art and adventure from Burning Man to Belize and beyond.
