Alex thrives in this industry because he loves the activity at the core of the business: the guided growth of a complex biological system to yield a high-quality plant and product. His formal education in micro-molecular biology afforded him hundreds of hours in academic research labs. But Alex’s thousands of hours in the practical laboratories of the marijuana industry have amplified education into expertise in: cell and systems biology; plant ecology, genomics, physiology, and histology; micro-biology, microbial genomics and genetics; organic chemistry, bio-chemistry.
Alex instills his passion for the science (and art) of marijuana ecology into those that he trains and manages. His best-practice evangelism ensures that staff not only dutifully execute the methodology, but also understand what those steps are doing and why those methods are in place.
