What’s your favorite kind of food? 

Definitely pizza. My favorite kind is mushroom, pepperoni and sausage from Mary’s Pizza Shack in Sonoma County. I’ve been going there since I was a little dude. 🍕

What was your first job?

My first real job with a paycheck was at an old folks’ home in Lakeport, CA where I was the head chef. I cooked a variety of dishes for them, but their favorite thing was my pepperoni pizza (not surprising). 

What’s your favorite book? Movie?

My favorite book is Monster by Walter Dean Myers–it helped me get through a really dark time in my life. My favorite movie is Scarface. 

What’s on your bucket list?

Someday I would love to go to Cairo, Egypt to see the pyramids and the Great Sphinx.

Red or black licorice? 


A typical weekend for me is.

On the weekends, I love doing activities with my kids. Most weekends, we typically load up the truck and take the kids to the beach or to a nice swimming hole. 🌊

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

If I could meet anybody in the world it would be Bruce Lee. I would love to know his philosophies and his true value of life.

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

Believe it or not, after a long days’ work I love to go home and lift weights. The sound of the iron clinging together brings peace to my heart. 🏋🏻

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

I think what most people don’t know about me is how big my heart is and how much I want to see people succeed.

What are you looking forward to in the coming months?

In these next couple of months I’m looking forward to my own personal growth. 

What’s your preferred type of cannabis product?

Flower, and I love smoking it out of a bong. 

What’s your favorite strain? 

OG Kush. I love the gassy smell and the earthy taste.

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


Describe your typical day at fumé.

A typical day at the farm includes the lovely warm sunshine, beautiful people and gorgeous plants. We all know hard work and dedication gets the job done. Out on the farm, love and teamwork really makes any project prevail.

What’s your favorite thing about working at fumé?

Good vibes. Good staff. I love this company–it’s one big happy family.
