Favorite Quote: “Success and rest don’t sleep together” Russian proverb
“As a veteran, registered nurse, writer and successful entrepreneur, Rick brings a wealth of experience – and tremendous passion – for impacting lives. His story begins in the US Army, where Rick enlisted from 1988-1990. He soon earned his BSN degree from the University of the Incarnate Word and became a registered nurse (RN). After several years in nursing Rick’s entrepreneurial spirit kicked in and in 2001 he bootstrapped started his first business which he grew to over $52MM in annual revenue before his exit in 2014.From there he dove into advising, mentoring and Angel investing and soon found a unique way to help our veterans with PTSD and entered into the cannabis industry.

He is now Founder and CEO of Green Seed Cannabis Co. and we help cannabis entrepreneurs scale and he also sits as a founding board member of Do No Harm, P.A.C., a Texas cannabis political action committee.

Our combined missions are to advocate, educate and connect to break and end the stigma around cannabis and further to cause the legislative and executive branches of the state of Texas to act quickly and effectively to modernize the legal prescription, distribution and production of medical cannabis for the compassionate treatment of our citizens.”
