Official Bio:

Well, it's hard to believe, but I've racked up 25 years in the restaurant industry – and the whole time my focus has been on wine. What can I say? I love the stuff. I spent several years consulting with top-notch restaurants and helping them to develop their wine lists – long before it was cool for every restaurant to have their own Sommelier. In fact, three of the wine lists that I developed actually received Wine Spectator's "Award of Excellence." Stands to reason that I really like finding the right wines for the right people.

Once I moved to Napa, I spent three years with Franciscan Estates, wearing lots of hats. My main job there was director of Wine Education. Since then I've been a Bounty Hunter Wine Scout. I look forward to being yours.
