420 Science

Started this business 19 years ago with my best friend, Gary. The great thing about starting a business when you're 24 is that you've got nothing to lose.Worst case scenario - I would've had to go back to being a programmer in a cubicle. Glad that didn't happen though.

  • Bootstrapped on credit cards.

  • $7 million in sales in our best year (2020).

  • Many years of losing money, breaking even, and small profits.

  • Invaluable experience gained learning about hiring, firing, e-commerce, email marketing, logistics, accounting, a million other things, and doing it all with one hand tied behind our back because of insane laws and corporate policies about a plant.

  • Need a bong?


So much more...

I've got a dozen more projects to launch. My head has been down, focusing on 420 Science and family life for a long time, but I'm experiencing a burst of creative energy unparalleled to any other period in my life. I could run circles around the 24-year-old version of myself - physically, mentally, and emotionally.New things are coming.
