FOUNDER

Dean

Foor

founder, director and extraction specialist of Entangled Biome. His work with hemp-based health and wellness products are rooted in thirty years of commitment to quality craftsmanship and ecological healing. Dean’s professional training and experience is international and multi-disciplinary. He has degrees in both Civil and Geomatic Engineering from Ohio State University (1993). Upon graduation Dean worked for six years in Alaska serving remote Native communities through bioremediation of petroleum contamination. He then completed a two-year training in viticulture and fermentation science in New South Wales and worked for four years as a wine-maker in Australia, Switzerland, and Oregon. Dean’s experience in environmental engineering, expertise in fermentation, and commitment to earth healing set the stage for a decade of pioneering work in the field of renewable energy. He has effectively managed over thirty million dollars of renewable energy infrastructure including the design and construction of two large-scale biofuel facilities in the Willamette Valley based on anaerobic digester technologies. He has served on the Advisory Panel for Oregon Department of Environmental Quality and in 2014 had the honor of representing Eugene, Oregon as a cultural ambassador to Nepal in civil engineering and waste management. Entangled Biome continues this decades-long commitment to meticulous craftsmanship and to well-run systems that support personal and ecological wellness. Dean oversees production of all products from seed to shelf utilizing only Organic Certified USDA industrial hemp and food-grade ethanol. He believes in a caring, hands-on approach to his craft and serves as a professional consultant for both medical marijuana processing and the production of full-spectrum CBD-rich hemp oil. Dean is also an avid cyclist, organic gardener, and amateur mycologist. He lives with his wife and four children in the Willamette Valley of Western Oregon.

OPERATIONS MANAGER

Jeff

Ballard

has been with Entangled Biome since the very beginning. Jeff and Dean have been friends for over ten years, sharing the love of the outdoors and also a love for cannabis and it’s healing powers. Jeff’s formal background is in art. He received a Bachelor of Fine Art from the University of Illinois in 2000 and continues to be a highly recognized glass artist and instructor worldwide in addition to being the Operations Manager at Entangled Biome. While Jeff’s keen eye for design has helped Entangled Biome create branding and develop an inviting brick and mortar location, it’s his experience in living soil cultivation methods for medical marijuana that originally got him working in hemp. In 2016 Jeff And Dean were contracted to revive a struggling one acre hemp farm near Eugene. It was that experience that helped them realize what their focus should be, and it wasn’t cultivation. It was then that Entangled Biome was formed. Jeff and Dean have focused on extraction and product development and left the growing to the local USDA organic certified farm that they’ve partnered with. They’ve made a commitment to themselves and the consumer to provide the highest quality, safe, reliable, alternative wellness products available.
