Previously an engineer, Thom’s passion for agriculture brought him to the cannabis industry. Today, he keeps our environment under control and makes sure the team and the plants can grow outstanding cannabis.
I grew up in an agricultural community in Southern Ontario and worked on a couple of farms during my youth. I studied engineering at the University of Guelph, but did all of my co-op work in agricultural research throughout my degree.
After graduating and a one-year internship at a consulting civil engineering firm, I returned to my agricultural roots and followed my love of plants to a greenhouse in Niagara to work at one of the largest licensed cannabis producers in Canada. Eventually I moved to United Greeneries, which made a great impression on me.
I love working with plants. I particularly love the harvest, as it’s always a fast-paced and demanding time. In the end it’s extremely rewarding to see the fruits of our labour and work in a field that produces medicine for people, especially if cannabis is the only effective relief for them.
