Official Bio:

Passion is the best word to describe my life and where I am today. My career started as a 12-year-old kid washing dishes, then college and 7 more years as a wine buyer trying to learn all I could. Then it hit me that the Wine and Spirits business is where I wanted to be. I started playing at a few Wineries in Sonoma, then an opportunity to sell wine in San Francisco for Young's Market Company (Fine Wine Division) took over my life for the next 10 years. During this time I learned a lot about people, the good, the bad and the ugly. While working my passion I realized that people (including myself) need to enjoy more the experiences and memories that are associated with wine and spirits. My goal now is to enjoy family and friends and excel at my job while introducing the best wine and spirits this world has to offer to my customers. The better the wine, the more memories and experiences you will remember!! Remember that…
