Tell us about yourself
I am a lawyer-turned-entrepreneur and visionary with a penchant for questioning paradigms and conventions and seeking truth and impact in their place. A husband, father of two boys, and repeated executive and founder of leading companies in the cannabis and psychedelic industries— including Trait Biosciences, Aurora Cannabis Inc, and now Field Trip Health Ltd— my ten-plus-year internal growth journey has been paramount in staying centered and balanced while executing on a groundbreaking vision to change the landscape of mental health.
From this journey, one lesson I've internalized is the beauty in seeing life through fresh eyes, like that of a curious child, and I hope to extend that lens to all and bring the world to life through Field Trip Health’s psychedelic therapies and technology.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Changing hearts, minds, and attitudes through Field Trip.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
The stress of being responsible for so many people's careers and incomes.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Find power in people telling you that something can't be done.
- Embrace failure.
- Never give up.
