I love connecting people with exciting new wines! I specialize in finding the right tone for whatever level wine-drinker I'm speaking with from novice consumers to the top level sommeliers. I passed the Master Sommelier exam in the re-nowned Class of 2018. I have developed and executed education programs based on Napa Valley terroir and blind tasting at Meadowood, Napa's top wine resort. I currently represent boutique producers in Napa, Sonoma and Europe at the distributor level, building brands and increasing sales. I have regularly traveled nationwide to teach seminars and support teams of distribution sales representatives.
I have significant experience building excursions in Napa and Sonoma with a focus on highlighting the effect of location on the wines. In my spare time, I mentor sommeliers preparing for Court of Master Sommelier exams at all levels. My time working with top chefs in 5 star establishments (Stephan Pyles, Thomas Keller, John Tesar) has instilled a strong desire to provide service at the highest level. I am capable of managing all aspects of a top flight profitable wine program. My close ties with many great winemakers and importers throughout the world have allowed me to direct several wineries into the Texas and California markets.
