I worked in technology and publishing before, during and after the dot.com bubble burst which ultimately drove me to wine, dine and write my way around the world. Notable pit stops include time as a food and nightlife critic in Manhattan followed by film development and slinging ads in Los Angeles, an experience that felt like a modern day “Mad Men” episode gone wild.
LA gridlock and the allure of a wineward way of life drove me up the coast to Napa Valley. As the Napa Insider columnist for NorthBay Biz magazine I’m taxed with touring the wine country for the never ending scoop. My work appears regularly in the California Home + Design, Wine Enthusiast, 7×7, Napa Valley Register, Napa Valley Life, Bohemian, Weekly Calistogan and beyond.
When I’m not reporting on the business of wine, food, and fun I can be found tirelessly shopping my first novel, Dear God, Can I Fire My Family? The ultimate passion project.
