Andrew is the first real “Cannabis Sommelier” his focus on pairing cannabis, beer, cocktail, wine and gastronomy are completely unique and original. He worked in the cannabis trade for over a decade. Noticing that there was a lack of scientific language for describing cannabis he became very interested in blind tasting wine.
His expertise in growing and extracting cannabis led to a passion in viticulture and oenology. He soon found himself living on a vineyard working as a cellar hand at a estate winery. While honing his palate he became a WSET 3 and one of few Canadian Wine Scholars.
Andrew currently teaches seminars about cannabis and wine pairing, cannabis cocktails and cannabis dining. He also hosts and presents at cannabis dining events across North America.
Andrew has been featured in The Hollywood Reporter, LA Weekly, Hightimes, The Globe & Mail and many more.
