I was born and raised around wine.
My grandmother was one of the most productive bootleggers in both Sonoma and Mendocino County.
As a child, I crushed grapes for wine by foot.
A little older, I worked in the vineyards as a teen.
I have worked for decades in the wine industry.
Mostly, I worked marketing wines, with my marketing leading to revenue increases for my employers.
Current job: Executive Director of the Anderson Valley Winegrowers Association.
