Meet Your Teachers
For Oliver Fungi Academy is truly a labor of love. His professional background is in marketing, but has been a self-taught grower of mushrooms for the past 7 years around the world, from his home in Estonia to Australia, Guatemala, and the States. His interest in mushrooms began, like many young cultivators, with psilocybin mushrooms. Since then, his passion has expanded to include all kind of fungi and has developed into a full-blown mycophile.
After leaving his corporate sales job over 4 years ago Jasper decided to travel the world in search for his true passions. While traveling through South-East Asia and Australia he found his passions in cooking and serving medicinal foods to others. He loves integrating all kinds of fungi and other micro-organisms in his cooking. As a self-taught ethnomycologist and all-round FUNgal fact powerhouse he finds joy in sharing his knowledge with others. Since settling down on the lake this nomadic mycophile has been diving deep in the world of medicinal and gourmet mushroom cultivation.
