02.12.2018 – I look for value where others do not see it.  When the marijuana industry is looking one direction, I like to look the other direction. I spend my days advising others in the industry and managing my ideas and assets, including my One Gro, Inc. shares.

I am the founder of One Gro and its largest shareholder. My team and I have a major stake in One Gro which has approximately $16M in assets. I sat as Chairman of the Board until last year when I exited to found a new company, Honu Xpress, Inc., focusing on intellectual property and emerging markets.  Additionally, I do consulting work, relying heavily on my legal background and experience in building One Gro from zero assets at month one to a revenue producing powerhouse.


In the early hours of the morning, law professors wonder whether anything we do makes the world a better place.

Today, I feel pretty sure that the answer is yes. That’s because, on January 28, I awoke to a televised image of Ammon Bundy’s lawyer, Mike Arnold of Eugene, Oregon, reading a statement urging the other Malheur protesters to stand down. Arnold is a former student of mine. I couldn’t be prouder.

Making the world a better place?

From the Eugene Register Guard, Feb. 14, 2016:

“Mike is amazing,” said resident Susan Hungerford. She said that several jurors told Arnold after her son’s [manslaughter] trial that they would call him if they ever got into legal trouble. “They were all over him, congratulating him,” Hungerford said.

Mike is amazing!
