LOREN MILLER | PLANT TECHNICIAN, CULTIVATION TEAM

What’s your favorite kind of food? 

Pasta. I love a good bowl of tasty pasta. A few of my favorites are a simple spaghetti, fettuccine alfredo, and pasta primavera… the list goes on. 

What was your first job?

My first job was working for Little Caesars (Pizza! Pizza!) in the small town of Ukiah, CA where I grew up. I was the go-to guy for making breadsticks.

What’s your favorite book? Movie?

I really enjoyed the Maximum Ride series by James Patterson. My favorite movie is Mr. Nobody.

What’s on your bucket list?

There are a lot of things on my bucket list. Sky Diving is near the top. I think it would be one of the most incredible and surreal experiences. I would also love to travel in a hot air balloon.

Red or black licorice? 

Black… looks like I might be the only one. 

A typical weekend for me is.

On the weekends I spend time with my daughter. It’s something I look forward to every week. My girlfriend and I also enjoy making dinners together. 

If you could meet anyone, dead or alive, who would it be and why?

Bob Marley. He was such an inspiration to me when I was growing up, and I would love to spend time chatting it up with him and smoking a joint or two.

How do you relax after a hard day’s work?

I keep it simple after work. I come home, watch TV, and take a big rip from my bong. 

What is one thing people don’t know about you?

I am adopted.

What are you looking forward to in the coming months?

I love this company and my teammates. I would like to grow in terms of responsibility and move up the ranks of the cultivation team. I work hard every day and have an amazing time doing it, in hopes to achieve this goal. 

What’s your preferred type of cannabis product?

Flower and extracts.

What’s your favorite strain? 

Chemdog (aka Chemdawg).

Where do you see the cannabis industry in the next 5 years? 10 years?

The cannabis industry is only getting started with its legal journey, but I see it BOOMING in the next 10 years. It’s really exciting to be part of this next phase. 

Describe your typical day at fumé.

I show up a little after 7 am and wait for my co-workers to arrive. We usually chat and catch up while we set up the trim room. The music starts playing; Michael, a cultivation team member, sometimes plays recordings of his own music, which I love, and we get in the zone with work. The days go by fast because I love what I do and getting to do it alongside such amazing individuals. 

What’s your favorite thing about working at fumé?

My favorite thing about working at fumé is the company in general. It’s like family. We all know each other on a more personal level than any other company I have ever worked for. It’s truly a wonderful experience.
