IT Began through a series of Apps-for-ag hackathons…

My dad was the one who actually dragged me out on a weekend at 6 AM to drive down to the Coalinga, CA. We placed 3rd in the Coalinga event and 3rd the UC Davis event. With this we won the ability to incorporate GreenThumb. Since then I was given the opportunity to mentor at the Watsonville event where I built out a cloud connected Arduino temperature and humidity sensor just for fun on the side of assisting the teams on their hacks.

Over the past few years GreenThumb has become a passion project of mine. What you see today is a culmination of over a decade of home growing as a California Medical cannabis patient and over 5 years of hobby development on Raspberry Pi cameras.
