Born and raised in Colorado, Tony always enjoyed the challenge of starting and building a business. At the young age of 25, he became an entrepreneur with two small construction companies. In 2005, he got introduced to the medical marijuana industry in Fort Collins, Colorado, and started a small MJ caregiving business called Highway to Healing. By the time he was 35, he had two dispensaries with an annual revenue of $6.5 million in sales, including two indoor grow facilities in Denver, Colorado – all four locations having 19 city and state licenses.


In late 2012, Tony joined a group of industry leaders to build Organa Brands and started a successful cannabis brand called O.penVAPE. The maker of vaping products and edibles posted a top-line sales of $100 million in 2016 and prides itself of selling a product every nine seconds. It buys ten tons of marijuana a year and creates over 1 million grams of concentrated cannabis oil a year. Organa Brands is the only cannabis company with products on the market in ten states, including at 1,200 dispensaries. Subsequently, Tony has moved on to other ancillary businesses involving small scale extraction and commercial grow technologies. He is also the author of the newly released book, From Black Market to The Man, which outlines the 10 steps to becoming a multi-millionaire in the legal cannabis industry.
