How did you end up working for Good Chemistry?
I was working as a prop stylist and splitting my time between NYC and South Florida. A guy that I worked with was a childhood friend of Matt’s business partner at the time. He (my co-worker) knew my skill set and said I should go out to Colorado to meet with them. I did in late 2009 and started working with Good Chemistry January 2010.
What is your role?
As Chief Production Officer I oversee all tasks associated with plant cultivation, from propagation to harvest, encompassing cloning, plant nutrition, pruning, pest control, growing, harvesting, curing, trimming, packaging, labeling and scheduling of plant cycles. I manage sophisticated lighting, irrigation and ventilation systems, ensuring cultivation of contaminant-free marijuana, consistent with Colorado Department of Agriculture and Marijuana Enforcement Division requirements and Good Manufacturing Practices.
What makes you come to work every day?
I love my job and the people I work with. It’s not every day that you get a chance to work in a new company in a brand new, growing industry.
What has been your favorite project at Good Chemistry?
Our latest cultivation facility. It’s nice to see all of the tweaks, changes and improvements we have made over the years culminate in one project.
Where would you like to see Good Chemistry in the next 5 years?
What are some of the things you like to do outside of work?
When I’m not working I’m either walking the dog, gardening or playing guitar.
