Adrian was born in 1973 in Atlanta, GA. He spent his formative years in Athens, GA in the music industry as a touring musician for the better part of 12 years. From there he evolved into a full on music industry professional. He has owned or partnered in 4 music venues from Athens, GA to San Francisco, CA to Asheville, NC. He also managed the band Rising Appalachia for 3 years from 2013 to 2016.
Most recently, he moved to Denver, CO to combine his passions of music and cannabis and founded the event 420 On the Block which is a street festival in downtown that promotes responsible behavior and proper compliant etiquette to the cannabis holiday in order to help bring respectability and success to cannabis events.
In the process of learning about Colorado cannabis, he made a pivot along the way to Hemp that is now his leading passion. He became Vice President of International Hemp Exchange (AKA ihempx.com) in 2016 and has dedicated his second life to this cause.
He now lives on a 33-acre hemp farm just outside of Longmont, CO.
