Who Am I?


  • I have a Masters of Science degree in Plant Pathology from UC Davis and currently work for a Cannabis farm in California as the manager of IPM (Integrated Pest Management). We run a high turnover, year-round hoophouse-based system. We grow high quality outdoor soil-grown plants and maximize the usage of safe biopesticides with beneficial insects and mites.
  • I have been home growing indoors for 11 years now, starting off in my undergraduate years in college (I received a B.S. in Biochemistry)
  • My hobbies include growing mushrooms, growing Cannabis, growing cacti and psychoactive plants, and growing fresh food.
  • My philosophy on agriculture is based on regenerative practices, soil health, and ethical stewardship of land and livestock.
  • I feel as if I can bring a unique perspective to educate the general public regarding disease and pest control in Cannabis and basic techniques for microgroweries.
  • Home growing cannabis is undergoing a boom, and people are hungry for knowledge and how to address the issues their plants are facing.
  • Cannabis is a fascinating plant; more research is published frequently, and I believe I can be of service in communicating some of the research to those searching for knowledge.

Opening questions

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
    • This is meant to be a resource of information, and I would like to help others achieve their goals of home growing
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
    • I will cover home growing techniques and products that every home grower needs to know.
    • I will communicate the latest in cannabis research, focusing most on information that will be useful for growing cannabis, specifically pest control, lighting, and nutrients.
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
    • Home growers, farmers, plant pathologists, and everyone interested in cannabis.
