  • I was an undercover cop in Oakland, California. To keep ourselves and the public safe and secure, we had to have a unique combination of talent, skills, and knowledge. I knew all of the unwritten rules on the street. I mastered the official regulations and compliance calls on local law enforcement. It’s what makes me a different and better cannabis expert. I’m here to protect you.
  • Security means much more than a camera, guard and alarm.  Having proper processes in place, understanding what offenders look for when targeting a person or business, and having a well rounded approach to written plans, SOP’s, security vendors and this all plays into the flow of your business is key to avoiding issues and protecting your people and product.  I learned from admitted burglars and robbers, exactly what they look for when targeting a person or business.  Trained in CPTED and Security audits through the American Crime Prevention Institute.  
  • I understand regulation and compliance as it relates to Law Enforcement and their growing role within the Cannabis Industry.  I am also a licensed Private Investigator focused on Cannabis investigations, Criminal Defense and Civil Litigation.
