I was Born in Bath, Maine in September of 1976. I am the owner of Gudroe Technology Group a technology company that I first worked for (B and B Communications) and eventually purchased. I am Married to my beautiful Wife, Sarah Gudroe, and together we have 2 children Patrick and Andrew. I first became involved with Medical Marijuana as a legal patient after my second round of Cancer. At that time I also became a volunteer consultant for others that wanted to know how to become a patient, soon after, I also started consulting with caregivers as well. In January of 2015 I volunteered to be a Technology consultant for MMCM. In March I was invited to take a seat on the Board as well as on the Home Grown Committee. Since this time, I have learned so much about the politics surrounding this field that I am now actively entering into the political world as well.
