Best in Class Education Committee

CEO - INTERNATIONAL CANNABIS SOLUTIONS

Kevin has been working with craft growers and patients in the cannabis industry since 2001 when medical cannabis became legal in Canada.

With a strong background in business management and finance (specifically agency, liability trading and investment banking)he continues to raise funds for private placements and consults on various small to mid size projects internationally.

In 2008, after becoming a victim of a hit and run accident, Kevin set out to educate himself on options to treat and manage the chronic pain condition he developed following the accident. What he found was a significant lack of understanding and numerous impediments to access the right physicians for diagnosis and the development of a comprehensive treatment plan.   Over time Kevin has successfully managed to reduce and eventually eliminate the usage of prescribed opioids for his conditions by including medical cannabis with other aspects of his treatment plan

Since that time he has conferred and consulted hundreds of individuals connected to the world of pain management and cannabis spanning from other patients, their families & friends, medical practitioners, cannabis companies, pharmaceutical industry representatives, legal professionals and members of law enforcement.

He is also proud to have consulted the Canadian Federal Government, several Provinces and many Municipalities within Canada advising on regulation and dignified access to treatment, including coauthoring a medical/legal report on the “Pain Epidemic in Canada and how Cannabis fits in your Treatment Plan”.

Kevin currently works with companies involved in Healthcare, pain management and cannabis including cultivators, energy management, greenhouse optimization, horticulture and seed genetics, physicians, Healthcare clinics, medical intakes including privacy issues, education, security, and other concerns of patients using cannabis as part of a multi-faceted pain management program.

Kevin currently serves as COO of International Cannabis Solutions and Executive Director of Chronic Pain Toronto.
