My First Job: From bike mechanic to biologist to caramel maker

"I started out in biology, ecosystem dynamics, stream ecology and then I went to database design and then eventually business analysis for a big multinational company. And then they moved out of state and I didn't want to leave Boston so I started this candy company. The common threads through all of these, in my opinion, are creativity, system interactions, and interacting with humans. I like to crunch numbers. I like the hustle. There's a little bit of performance art in all of these things. You have to have the kind of charisma and character to be able to be to engage your audience." ~ Jason McCrea
