Hey everyone! I'm Adi. Growing up in rural New Jersey, I’ve always had a profound sense of wonder for nature and our planet.

 

As a kid, I spent summers running through the woods barefoot, and my mom could barely get a brush through my long, straggly hair. 

My dreams of becoming a professional musician carried me to The Juilliard School in New York. I became a band leader, recording and touring internationally with some amazing artists, including Beyoncè, JayZ, Demi Lovato, and more. My love for food also took me to The French Culinary Institute in Soho.

In 2020, after growing tired of the time-consuming hassle of managing a vermicompost system of 5,000+ worms in my North Bergen apartment, I began searching for other solutions to compost organic material. But I couldn't find a compost pick-up service nearby or a drop-off compost near me. 

So, I decided to start Neighborhood Compost!
