What’s your favorite part of NCF? 
I absolutely love the advocacy and education that the Festival offers. I have learned so much from being part of it for the past 4 years. I have learned about prison reform, parents using cannabis for kids who are epileptic, and veterans fighting for legalization. I love the wide range of people who attend from all different backgrounds all brought together by their love of music, cannabis and reform. 

What do you do in your free time?
I work with clients in the music industry on marketing and management. I also own a clothing line called House of Dash. I love to travel and learn about new cultures and countries. 

Favorite music to smoke to?
Young Dolph and Moneybagg Yo



Toby works with ambassadors on membership, promotional reports and coordinating guest list needs and swag opportunities.  

What’s your favorite part of NCF?
I like the diversity… the types of people the festival brings together is amazing and there is something for everyone to do. When the festival is at its peak attendance it's awesome to look over the crowd and see all the different faces coming together to celebrate something that is important to them whether it be music, legalization, education or just to smoke with their buddies!

What do you do in your free time?
I go to concerts and music festivals... anything that has to do with music you will probably find me there either working or attending!!

Favorite music to smoke to?
Anything Frank Ocean, Atmosphere or Stevie Nicks related 



Ru works with production across the membership, promotion and content activation spectrum. 

What’s your favorite part of NCF?
My favorite part of NCF is how the exhibitor activations become mini-parties with the attendees. It's cool to see what the sponsors and exhibitors put together and how it pairs with the music and vibe of the festival in general.

What books are on your fall reading list?
I'm revisiting The Gentle Art of Verbal Self-Defense by Suzette Haden-Elgin. It's cool to see how language and communication has changed over the years, especially as we are becoming more and more digital.

What are you most looking forward to at NCF2019?
The Policy Summit and the headliner at the festival!
