Michael Grant is a global pioneer in the dental industry and a true international entrepreneur, with a professional career spanning from America to Australia and Asia. After being sponsored by Siemens to pursue German studies, he got involved in Seoul's first American-owned Guttapercha and Paper Point manufacturer. This experience opened many doors, including his time spent with a German dental materials manufacturer in Seefeld, Bavaria where he was part of the export team. After that, Michael was sent to Sydney Australia as sales and marketing manager for Australia, New Zealand and Asia before moving on to serve as president of a newly formed joint venture between Espe/Premier in the USA. Eventually, Espe sold to 3M and Michael started Pagoda International—an independent international dental consultancy.

Green Me Organic Farm offers farm tours, providing hands-on educational opportunities for agriculture students, and also functions as a Thai FDA-Approved food processing plant, cafe, and restaurant. Michael acts as farm stay host, financier, and Board Member.
