His primary focus is writing and developing custom content for competitive cannabis business ventures.

His areas of expertise include business planning, feasibility studies, inventory control, record keeping, QA/QC, standard operating procedures, operational efficiency, sanitation, security, testing requirements, and staffing/training, amongst others.Garrett has a BA in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from CU-Boulder and worked in both the pharmaceutical and geoscience industries prior to his transition into cannabis. His diverse work experience, passion for science, and attention to detail have contributed greatly to his success within this space. Prior to joining Canna Advisors, Garrett served as the Inventory Manager and General Manager for a Colorado cannabis company, managing inventory and operations between their two dispensary locations (one of which was dual medical/adult-use), three adult-use cultivation facilities, and one medical cultivation facility. This experience gave him an in-depth understanding of cannabis business operations within Colorado, which continues to set the standards for the industry.
