his Huffy bike and playing Freeze-Tag so he could chase girls – a true adventure! To this day,
Michael is an adventurous and strong leader of Farallon Brands taking on everything from running
the business to pursuing new ventures.

whatever they were doing. Glenn loved math for its absoluteness, didn't like vegetables and loved
playing and watching basketball, in particular Magic Johnson and the Lakers. Today, Glenn continues
to use his talent for math through his inventory tracking for The Peanut Shell. He has a knack for
keeping track of multiple low and high volume orders and ensuring on-time shipping and receiving.
Glenn keeps it all together for The Peanut Shell.
