Benzi Ronen consults to farms on how to take advantage of Internet related technologies to increase their profitability and sustainability. While he grew up between Manhattan's high-rises, he was always drawn to the outdoors.

He has a passion for travel and has been to many remote places in the world, experiencing the locals through their agriculture and culinary culture. Regions of travel include: South & Central America, The Far East, Australia/New Zealand and the Middle East.
