Territory Manager - So Cal
Working with exciting and interesting people in the cannabis industry is like déjà vu of a dream; presenting the possibilities of better, natural medicines and encouraging the normalcy and benefits of cannabis. I have been a consumer myself for almost 20 years. I was a little wild, competitive and athletic in my youth and managed to acquire a few injuries, cannabis has managed my pain ever since. I currently live in Torrance with my wife and our 2 children. I enjoy surfing, aquaponics, and growing many different types of plants with the help of over thirty tilapia.
These past years, I have helped edible companies establish a footprint in Southern California. I wanted to take advantage of the opportunity to develop relationships with dispensaries and delivery services, all while providing top-quality products. Patients suffering from issues such as mine like chronic pain and insomnia, someone fighting cancer, or a child with seizures are the people who continue to drive my passion for this industry, knowing that the products can help them. Dispensary rules are always changing and I expect they will continue to do so for years to come. However, with changes and regulations, my goal remains the same: continue supplying as many Americans as possible with quality cannabis to improve their lives.
Territory Manager - Bay Area
After working for 23 years as an architectural lighting designer, my the passion for the home & design industry declined and I decided to change it up. By 2014, I was producing 2 music festivals in Berkeley California. One day, I received a call from the owner of a local dispensary who wanted to sponsor one of the events and my relationships with various cannabis companies grew from there. I was intrigued by the industry because I had many friends and family members that were starting to turn to cannabis as an alternative medicine for serious medical conditions. I decided to turn my attention towards this amazing medicine as a career and finding ways to support the people that need access to safe cannabis.
From 2015-2016 I was a manager and buyer for a popular Berkeley dispensary where I was able to learn a great deal about the California Cannabis market, the patients, products, and culture. In 2016, I went to work on the distribution side of the industry, representing 12 manufacturers for Lifted Logistics where I consulted with various licensed distribution projects working towards getting new companies and products compliant and ready to go to market. In December 2018, I joined Fenix Logistics, a new company reborn from Lifted Logistics which was known for representing local, family-owned craft brands and providing professional support and service. I am honored to be part of this new amazing Fenix Family team and still love this ever-changing, adaptive, and growing industry. Go Cannabis!
