I will be leaving Austin Texas in 2017 to return to my home state of Massachusetts, and my objective is to find an opportunity which both speaks to my interest in team management and my passion for the up and coming cannabis industry. I am committed to finding a job which will allow me to focus all my energy and enthusiasm for these things in a long term, full time capacity. I have a professional, focused demeanor and pride myself on my ethics and dedication.
