Additional Information

8 Years of experience in hemp and marijuana I have experience in providing opinions in both State and Federal Court. I have been retained in 12 cases in the last 2 years. I have experience testifying in court and in depositions. My mix of industry experience and education make me uniquely qualified to address many types of issues within Marijuana and Hemp industries. Where many experts have a narrow area of expertise I have developed a broad spectrum of experience that allows me to address in most instances the entirety of issues involved in a case. I am experienced in indoor and outdoor cannabis cultivation, markets, and business practices. I can articulate an educated clear opinion in many areas of the hemp and marijuana industries involving cultivation, equipment, infrastructure, and the broader hemp market. In addition to continuing expert witness case work, I currently work with Rocky Mountain Distributors, a laboratory and cultivation facility producing live rosin for the retail marijuana market in Colorado. I provide support with propagation, cultivation, harvesting, trimming, transportation and compliance of product for distribution and lab testing, as well as equipment and cultivation infrastructure. I am also currently involved in consulting for marjuana breeding programs for feminized seed production most recently in New York State in the spring of 2023. In addition, I am licensed by the Colorado Marijuana Enforcement Division under license number M143271 to work within the marijuana industry in the state of Colorado.
