Jock Brandis

Director of
Research and Development

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!
