cropped-headshotI am a documentary junkie and I’ve always loved food and wine. After watching the first Somm movie, I was bitten. It would take several years before I decided on formal wine education, but in 2016, I began studying for the Certified Specialist of Wine designation through the Society of Wine Educators.

I volunteered to coordinate events for local wine meet ups. I started my own wine meet up. I began writing this blog. I listened to wine podcasts any time I was in my car. All in attempt to pursue this passion for wine, without alienating my friends, and being “that person” at social gatherings.

Fast forward a few years, and I’ve lead corporate wine events, and I’ve become fully licensed to import wine.  I am working hard to see if I can make this happen. It is not easy, as a company of one, to get a foot in the door in an industry full of behemoth distributors.

In the meantime, I’ll continue to explore, research, write, and hopefully educate in a fun and inspiring way. I hope you’ll join me on the journey.
