Post Production Lead
Kaleb started at FSOil in 2019 as a technician. He loved the purpose and mission of FSOil, and found each minute to be an adventure and challenge.

After many years working in the service industry, Colin decided to change gears and try something new. In July of 2017 Colin began working at CO2 Dynamics in Portland, OR. There he learned the process of extracting cannabinoids using supercritical CO2. In October of 2017 Colin was called upon to help at Iverson Family Farms with their Industrial Hemp operation, extracting CBD. Initially supposed to be a temporary assignment, the demand for CBD skyrocketed and a decision to stay at the farm was made in early 2018. Colin’s attention to detail and troubleshooting skills have benefited him at FSOil where he has streamlined processes in extraction and primed him to become the Lead Extractor at FSOil.
Jensen graduated from the University of Oregon in 2007 with a BA in Political Science and History. After many years working in restaurants, he was recruited by Tim Shaughnessy in January of 2017 to work for CO2 Dynamics in NW Portland, making boutique batches of high grade Cannabis Oil. Tim’s connection with the Iverson Family lead him to Woodburn , OR in July of 2017 to scale up production, applying the same principles to large scale industrial hemp oil extraction. As the business grew, so did the opportunity to extract various alternative ingredients for health and wellness. Much like working in the service industry, Jensen has embraced manufacturing at FSOil as an opportunity to help improve the quality of life of Oregonians, Americans and citizens of the world.
