I'm a commercial cannabis attorney, political advocate and entrepreneur with years of expertise advising start-ups in various industries from high-tech to agriculture. I am co-founder and of counsel of the Cannabis Practice Group of L+G, LLP
I co-founded and served as Vice President and legal counsel of Indus Holding Company, who in 2015 launched "Altai" and brought the well-known recreational brands of "Dixie Elixirs" and "Juju Joints" to the California medical marijuana market.
As a business consultant and lawyer, I manage legal compliance and operations for existing business lines and develop future business opportunities. I consult on commercial cannabis projects and also speak at various cannabis industry and political events.
The projects that most interest me express fundamental core values such as increasing consumer safety, improving technologies, encouraging the political progress of our emerging industry and safeguarding its precious roots.
I live in Monterey County, California with my girlfriend and our rambunctious labrador. I am an avid reader, yogi, surfer and general adventurer for new people and places. I hope this site provides you with the enthusiasm, encouragement and insight that I have received from our community in building the next great American industry.
