Originally from mainstream media, I was a producer in Los Angeles when I was brought up to Humboldt County, in Northern California, ten years ago, to produce a news show. While there, five years ago, I presented with breast cancer.
Due to my working in media in the cannabis capitol of the world, I was offered a strong cannabis oil, successfully putting the cancer into remission, while doing away with numerous prescription meds and supplements for myriad conditions/ailments.
This changed my life and career forever, and I've written of nothing else since, with a focus on patient, caregiver, and medicine maker profiles, covering six states and three countries on the subject.
This past year I’ve come full-circle back to television and film, developing intelligent magazine, reality, and documentary shows on the subject. I've also penned a pilot script (with co-writer), from a book I wrote, Cannaopolis being shopped now. Cannaopolis is a family drama based on fact, from my time, friendships, and experiences in Humboldt County.
All-in-all, I've become a niche out of circumstance; knowledgeable on cannabis as medicine (would love to segment and field produce on the subject), with a solid background in production.
Thanks to Stage 32 for giving me a platform to share. For the past five years I've been stuck in the middle of the cannabis community, while merely peering back into mainstream, waiting for the masses to be educated on the subject.
