Hi, everybody. I recently decided to take a little break from growing and move to Denver, Colorado to be near family. I like it so much, I’ve decided to stay out here. Now I’m looking for a grower job. I’m happy to start in an entry level position but I am also qualified for a higher level position. Below is a little bit about me, my resume, and some pictures of my work.
I have been growing medical cannabis for 17 years now, 8 commercially. It is my passion. I love it. I love helping people with cannabis as well. I have owned and ran two sperate canna businesses, and I have always given away as much as I can to help my patients.
I have extensive experience in growing, breeding, clean grow room design, and running small grow teams. I have also run harvest and trim crew.
Also just because I have a lot of experience does not mean I am a know it all, nor do I feel entitled to any special treatment. I am always trying learn more from other growers, and share my knowledge with them as well. My goal is produce the highest quality, and cleanest cannabis available. This takes hard work, and team work. I do not cut corners, and I am a positive person. I am dedicated to the grow, and I have open availability and will work holidays.
I also have my MED key badge.
RESUME. (I have removed some details for privacy. If you are making a serious inquiry send me a private message with your name, number, email, company name, and the position you would like to interview me for. I will work for legal grows only that follow all MED laws. I have turned down sketchy grows already.)
Within the cannabis industry I have produced high quality, clean cannabis using a multitude of growing methods. I have managed every aspect of grows from seed and clone to final sale of product. My product will not only meet regulations, but will also satisfy any patient or connoisseur. I have been growing for 17 years and been growing commercially for 8 years. I now have my M.E.D.
