The Seed2Soul Management team is comprised of a gifted, experienced and
successful group of proven entrepreneurs and critical role players.
Our visionary leader, Patrick was enamored with cannabis as medicine early on in his life. The art of cultivating a flower that was clean and pure for the patient became his passion. Since cannabis had not legally been recognized at the time as medicine, Patrick stayed focused on legal businesses, building subdivisions through his development company, King Family Homes. Almost as if it was fate... others noted his gift for producing healthy, sun-grown plants in a super-soil of his own creation... and they all wanted his assistance. Like any great entrepreneur, Patrick saw the need and the Soil King was born.
Over the next ten years, Patrick monetized his gift through his companies but never lost sight of his reason for sharing the secrets to cultivating beautiful medicinal cannabis and never lost sight of his love for the community of Cloverdale. Even as indoor, manipulated agriculture gained in popularity, Patrick was firm in advocating sun-
grown, small farmed cannabis and that whole plant development have become our mission today at Seed2Soul.
Patrick is usually ahead of the market curve when it comes to the knowledge and benefits of different cannabis derivatives. This, combined with a very successful media platform, TV shows, Social Media and his own production company... have made him a widely known and trusted public figure in cannabis. Locally we enjoy the full support of Cloverdale and Sonoma County-based largely upon the gravitas of Patrick as a public figure with integrity and pure intentionality. Although obviously, with Patrick at the helm, we open many doors in the supply chain... the voice of our founder reigns in all of our decisions. “We are changing the world, one plant at a time.”
An original co-owner of Seed 2 Soul, Dave started out with an entirely different goal; growing up, dreaming of being an educator. After teaching for many years, receiving his Master’s degree from Berkeley, he became a school principal. Being a school administrator brought him great joy, but after nearly 20 years in education, the opportunity to work in luxury real estate was one he could not pass up. Dave built a team ranked in the top 1% of California and attributes that success to his drive, communication skills, experience in research, leadership and education. Dave’s business and leadership acumen has been honed on other successful ventures, such as Brut Bottling; a bottling line based in the Napa Valley and Alpha Exchangors; a 1031 Exchange and Creative Wealth Solutions company. When Dave met Patrick he was touched by the gentle, honest passions of “The Soil King” and Pat's vision for Seed2Soul and immediately knew a mutually loving and productive partnership was afoot. Dave’s market knowledge and experience empowering others through opportunity perfectly combines with our Seed2Soul values that cherish the relationships around us. Dave’s is proud to work hard to make all those around him successful and never (OK… rarely)... losing sight of his role as a husband, father, son, brother, and friend... Dave is focused on leading and sharing the successes of Seed2Soul.
Greg brings a wide range of business experience, education and focus to the Seed2Soul Management team. Armed with an electrical engineering degree from the University of Pittsburgh, Greg spent 10 years as a professional engineer, then broke out and opened a retail store in 1990. 20 years later he and his wife opened a restaurant and wine bar which they ran successfully until selling all of the businesses in 2012. Together they moved to Napa where he began renovating a 3-unit rental property until he was hired by a then-fledgling Cannabis company, CannaCraft. From their infantile beginning, Greg was instrumental in managing the growing business. During his tenure at CannaCraft, he managed the operations and, in that capacity, utilized his acumen to fine-tune the processes and increase production in multiples. Recognizing Seed2Soul’s Mission, Vision, Values, Goals, and Leadership, Greg pivoted into our operation to lead as our Chief Operation Officer and has driven our operational build-out, Standards of Practice and everything in between.
