Staff 

JOCK BRANDIS
DIRECTOR OF R&D


Jock is the founder of Full Belly and the lead inventor of its technology. He realized while in the movie business that if he could make professional wrestling look somewhat real, then bringing efficient tools to small farmers around the world would be a cinch. He also discovered that it's the most fun at a job he has ever had!
