I am currently the General Counsel in charge of legal affairs for CannaCraft, the largest vertically integrated cannabis company in the State of California. Prior to my work in the cannabis industry, I worked with craft breweries and distilleries as out-sourced in house counsel for matters ranging from regulatory compliance to intellectual property. During this time, I also co-authored "Brew Law 101: A Legal Guide to Opening a Brewery," a laymen's guide to beer law in the State of California. I graduated from the University of San Diego School of Law with a Juris Doctor and passed the California State Bar in 2015. During my law school tenure, I was the Editor-in-Chief for "Motions," the USD Law newspaper, Lead Articles Editor for the San Diego International Law Journal, and the president of the Sports & Entertainment Law Society. In 2011, I graduated magna cum laude with honors from the University of Redlands with a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature.
