In the first part of this Feature, we interview Ken Tomita, Co-founder, and CEO of Grovemade. Grovemade manufactures and sells accessories for your home and office that are functional and minimalist.

Ken explains his unconventional story to get where he is today. He was in a prestigious architecture program for college and dropped out. The professor who helped him decide to drop out connected him with a great job making bamboo furniture and art.

He highlights his career and how he learned the ropes. By breaking the rules of a “traditional career path,” Ken created a life and a brand he’s proud of.

Throughout the conversation, Ken reiterates his interest in learning and evolving.

In Part 1, we hear about Ken’s career path, his big decision to leave college, and how the quest for learning shapes everything in his life.

Join us while Ramon Vela interviews Ken on The Story of a Brand and listen to him share the inside story of a brand.
