Our Story

We love adventure and live in joy!

In the fall of 1979, Stuart and Kim met in a Psychology class at The Colorado College and became best friends.  

It took 37 years and a few seconds of courage for them to reunite via social media.  

Within 4 days they realized their friendship was stronger than ever and 30 days later they met in Pacifica, CA. 

It took only 4 months to move Stuart to Scottsdale Arizona, Stuart had sold Camelina Gold in the Vancouver, Washington Farmer’s Market for years, and he wanted to “bring his oil to the desert”!

Stuart and Kim are dedicated to to living a life full of joy, fun, laughter and adding to their healthful and heart-based tribe.

Stuart first was introduced to Camelina Oil at the Vancouver, WA Farmer’s Market.  “After I heard all of the healthful aspects of this very special oil, I realized it was the most uniquely beneficial oil I had ever seen!”  The following week, Stuart returned to the market and asked to be part of the campaign to spread the word on the wonderful aspects of Camelina Oil.  

Stuart extended his commitment to supporting healthful living by becoming a Certified Health Coach and Master Health Coach, specializing in coaching men over 40 to reclaim their health and well-being.  His company, Good Knight Health, LLC.
