Who Am I?

 

My name is Elijah Rosenbaum. I'm an Eagle Scout, an NYU Graduate, and I'm interested in Cannabis. From my podcast The CannaCast, to my trip to Detroit to volunteer for the High Times Cannabis Cup passing out free dabs to VIPs, to taking a course at NYU on weed, to my favorite strains to smoke myself, Cannabis is a passion.

Coming from Kentucky, I'm no stranger to Cannabis and the people who grow it. My great grandfather was also a moonshiner during prohibition, his son, my grandfather, would move into the distilleries though to become Distillery Supervisor at the Jim Beam Booker Noe Plant. Cannabis prohibition is coming to an end, and I want to learn the edge of a shifting industry from illegal to legal. Though unlike my great grandfather, things are going to be on the up and up. 

Eventually I would like to own my own farm and line of organic, sustainably grown, all natural cannabis products and solvent-less extracts. One step at a time though.

That's enough from me though, if you want to read what others have said about me or would like to read my resume, scroll down. Thanks for reading and I look forward to hearing from you! If you'd like to contact me, you can email: rosenbaumelijah@gmail.com

Don't Take My Word For it!

NYU GLS Senior Thesis

Street Art in Tel Aviv

In my thesis I worked on an almost two year research project made up of both secondary sources and primary research conducted by myself about the street art community in Tel Aviv including interviews, photos, and statistics. During the course of this process, I tracked down anonymous and discreet artists working by Pseudonyms using a variety of methods from tracking social media, to asking around bars, to making friends with tattoo parlor owners to find a way to get word to the people I needed to talk to. One anonymous artist I found by finding a street art tour guide who knew his private social media account, which I then contacted him through and asked to meet. We met in public and we then had a 3 hour interview on street art and in particular street art in tel aviv. 

Mobility Restricted - Raised Garden Beds

As an Eagle Scout, I directed a project to design, build, and install three raised garden beds set to certain standards so that elderly residents of the local HUD retirement community could use the garden. Many in the area come from rural backgrounds or have had the use of much land in the past, and no longer have the opportunity to interact with the soil as much as they once did. By building the garden beds, not only does it allow them to reignite one of their most exciting passions, it also gets them active and out. Also, since the fruits of their labor were contributed to the cafeteria that they ate at, it also returned some sense of agency about contributing and working to provide for themselves.

Active Blog Since 2016

I keep an active blog of observations, interests, and updates on what I am currently doing on my personal website. Writing is a passion for me, and I like to improve my skills constantly to better my ability to communicate with other people. I find that it helps tremendously professionally as well, having to write both for copy in a media environment and to discuss new ideas and plans with fellow employees.
