About Ryan

Former Army officer with startup (hardware), defense and healthcare experience moving into the Cannabis Industry.

Working on using my unique background, story and voice to push for increased access to cannabis for all adults and individuals who could medically benefit from it.

Also, currently consulting for a team backed by substantial investor support to find new markets and value streams in the cannabis industry to enter into.

Lastly, working on my own startup - Ceresta - which vastly improves cannabis labor market utilization and efficiency through better discretion externally, while maximizing transparency internally.
