(Yep, it’s my real name.)
I created Craft Mary Jane to bring spirited ideals and innovative business perspectives to the thrilling industry of cannabis. I hope that by sharing insights from my background in startups and the technology industry, I can help cannabis entrepreneurs thrive.
A mix of innovative thinking, maverick leadership and startup nerd-ery, with a healthy dab of spirited swagger and technological whiz-bang, if Woody Harrelson, Richard Branson, Gertrude Stein and Andre 3000 had a love child, it would be me. (I know, it’s a crazy mix.)
I grew up in Southern Oregon before making my bones in the technology industry, and I’ve spent the last 10 years growing from web and software design, user experience, and customer research into a full-on maven of innovation.
I love the cannabis community and want to share what I know about creating a business that is magnetic and passionate to your customers so the future of cannabusiness grows bright for everyone.
I love laughing, being outside, animals, dance parties, wild road trips, Atlas Obscura, technological advancements and nerds of all kinds. You can always curry my favor with a killer curry at a hole-in-the-wall Indian joint and a ridiculous pun.
Through the articles, podcasts, videos, products, programs and live events offered from Craft Mary Jane, it is my goal to share essential insights from the posse of rock star leaders in cannabis and business.
I’m all about the future vision, and it’s an exciting time when something so volatile as a new market merges so beautifully with my passions of building tribes, innovating and the magic of cannabis. I’m so honored to share what I know to help my community grow.
Thank you for taking a moment to get to know me. I would love to return the favor. I would love to know what you’re working on, what you need help with, or what you want to learn. Maybe I can even help point you in the right direction. Shoot me a message, I’d love to hear from you.
