Meet the Crew

We are incredibly fortunate to have such an amazing crew that we consider family. Some have a background in aquaculture…others just have a calling to be on the water. However, we all share a common goal—to raise the best damn oysters you've ever tasted.

Andrew

Head Swashbuckler

Andrew grew up sailing and enjoys being on the water. His background is in finance and the law, but he's permanently traded in his suits and briefcases for rubber boots, SPF shirts, and muddy trucks. He may not have a background in oyster farming, but some might think he's a fish because he drinks like one and has been swimming under water since before he was two.

Jessica

The Booty

Jessica fell in love with Charleston on a college trip and has adored the charm of the lowcountry ever since. Her background is in branding and graphic design but her passion lies in cooking, entertaining, and southern hospitality. She is currently in charge of all the behind the scenes work that keeps the place going and raising the next generation of little shuckers.

Jon

Operations Manager

After a lifetime of building houses all over the lowcountry, and with a passion for being on the water crabbing, shrimping, fishing and diving, we finally talked Jon into joining the Toogoodoo family full time.

David

Nursery Manager

Dave and his family joined us from North Carolina. He has a major in aquaculture and a proud Marine Corps service history. Thankfully he runs a tight ship because he and his English Bulldog have up to 100 million seed to grow.

Bryan majored in aquaculture and is now an integral part of our hatchery. He enjoys surfing, fishing, and taking long walks on the dock.

Hatchery Manager

When the cold war ended, Leon brought his knowledge of covert bi-valve production over from the Ukraine. We are still waiting to hear back from the State Department to see if we can post his picture.

Quite honestly, he's the only one that knows anything about growing out oysters, needless to say we're glad to have him running the leases.
