I wear bow ties and work in the drinks business.


I have several years of experience within the wine industry from harvest to sales. I  started my career in Livermore pouring in tasting rooms for a few years before working my way into the cellar. As my experience grew I was brought on as a partner with a small winery where I started making my own wine as well as building a new tasting room and wine club. After several years of hard work, I decided to leave Livermore and further my career with wholesale sales and inventory management in Napa. In 2013 I came to Santa Cruz to get back to my roots in tasting rooms and currently I manage a winery in Saratoga.



I am available for custom tastings, wine education, and business consulting.
