Rainbo was born in 2018 in my Toronto apartment after many transformative experiences with fungi, but the spores of awareness were planted much earlier. My journey with fungi first began in 2011 brewing mushroom tea and reconnecting to nature in the Canadian forests. It was in this season that I knew mushrooms would be with me for the rest of my life. They became and still are instrumental in my healing journey, and I know they can be for yours, too.
For many years I struggled with digestive issues and immune dysregulation. Mentally, I was anxious and in a constant cycle of stress and brain fog—in retrospect I was existing in a general state of disconnection. After failed attempts at feeling better via traditional western medicine, my world shifted as I adopted mind-body practices, changed my diet and began taking mushrooms functionally.
I created Rainbo to spread mushrooms to the masses and get people healthier and more deeply connected to nature. Mushrooms have shown me that whole-person healing is possible—that balance between all parts of ourselves and our social and natural environments is within grasp.
The great metaphor of what mushrooms represent in nature is both my—and Rainbo’s—raison d’être: resilience, cooperation, and the unfathomable magnitude of nature’s intelligence and interconnectedness. These fungal organisms contain some of the secrets to life as they network and weave wisdom into the collective consciousness.
I’m so happy our journeys have converged at this moment in time because now is the time. Thank you for being here and welcome to our Rainbo world.

Because eventually, we’ll all go back to fungi.
This is our cosmic trip.
In through nature, out through nature. What we do in between is our calling.
Because eventually, we’ll see there was no separation—only a collective chance
We are fungal advocates. We see the unseen and know the unknown.
We are human nature potentiators. The path forward to human and planetary
health is ours to hold, nourish and remember.
We are guided by
Remember you are nature.
We need fungi, and fungi need the planet. Mushrooms hold the intelligence to heal but they can only spread their wisdom with us if the ecosystem we share is a healthy one. World saving solutions are underfoot, and we’re bringing them to light for the benefit of all beings.
