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 and most recently I co-founded and structured Indus Holding Company which brought cannabis brands "Altai" and "Dixie Elixirs" to the California marketplace in 2015.

As Vice President and General Counsel for Indus Holding Company and related subsidiaries, I manage legal compliance and operations for existing business lines and develop future business opportunities. On occasion I am asked to consult on commercial cannabis projects and also speak at various cannabis industry 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 Pacific Grove, 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.
