Since we began our growing and indoor cultivation journey several decades ago, our team has been through it all and have tried almost every style of cultivation under the artificial sun.
We've seen a lot of success and have learned our fair share of lessons, and in the end, we've decided the Brighterside way is the better way. Why? Because our turn-key grow solutions have been designed specifically for the real grower, because our company was built by real growers.

Founders & Principals
“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” - Benjamin Franklin
Chief Executive Officer
To say Frank loves growing cannabis would be an understatement. For the last 22 years Frank has been cultivating cannabis using varying techniques across the United States. It is his mission to advance this industry through efficient gardening techniques, organic cultivation practices and streamlined equipment designs. Frank founded Brighterside Consulting in 2010 from Denver, Colorado, where he focused on developing standard operating procedures and building indoor cultivations. This experience led to the development of Brighterside’s vertical farming systems and other products that enable cultivations to become more profitable. When Frank is not in the garden (which is rare), he enjoys hunting for cannabis genetics to continue the preservation of this plant.
