Meet the Crew

Hassan Sharaff

FOUNDER

Hassan founded HydroHouse Farms in 2016 with the intention of bringing quality, sustainable, responsibly grown food back to local communities. Previously he had worked in the financial service, digital media, non-profit, and hospitality sectors.

 

Through his various experiences he noticed a growing need for high quality food production and agricultural education. HHF was created to meet those important needs. Hassan graduated from Vanderbilt University with a Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering. In his spare time he enjoys making music, playing sports, and running around with his dog.

Danny and Hassan met as fellow Commodore undergraduates  at Vanderbilt University.
