Team Member Spotlight / Carte Blanche December 15, 2017
My Name is Jonathan Mayer - no relation to the singer. I was born in Toronto, but I have lived in London and Gold Coast, Australia. I like to travel and see the “real” side of any country I visit. I spent a month traveling through Vietnam living and eating like a local. I have also had similar experiences in New Zealand, Fiji, Kenya, and Costa Rica. I enjoy playing hockey every week with my friends and skiing every winter. I have been lucky to have skied in California, Colorado, France, Austria, New Zealand, and Canada (I am happy to give suggestions if anyone would like). I was recently introduced to yoga and meditation by my girlfriend, and I have discovered the numerous benefits of these practices. Staying fit mentally as well as physically is very important to me.
I am a legal intern for Province Brands. I have previous legal experience articling at Borlak Law, which is a corporate firm that works primarily with insurance brokerages. I am very interested in the cannabis industry, and I have been following the progression of the industry since legalization was first proposed. I truly believe that what Province wants to do in the industry is innovative and unique. Legitimizing the use of cannabis through a beverage can change stigma surrounding its use in social situations, such as in a bar, or at a party/corporate event. Also, as a health enthusiast I believe that our product would be a healthy alternative to alcohol.
I am very excited to be part of this forward thinking team. I am looking forward to watching this company grow as this industry develops across Canada.
