Jules' bio reads more like a country song. A kid born in the big city, longing for pickup trucks, dirt roads, and endless fishing.

Rhode Island offered Jules the opportunity to start an oyster farm, and he's been doing it ever since.

Finn is a jack-of-all trades. He can easily kick-flip over a masterpiece he just painted, while explaining the intricacies of growing an oyster, all while landing a nose-blunt slide on a rail he just welded. The kid does it all. If you ever need to find something on the farm, Finns eagle eye will lock onto it. He once caught an octopus on the farm with his bare hands.
