Originally from Massachusetts, I moved to Oregon in the early 90’s because the Pacific NW has everything I love; mountains, coast, rivers, great cuisine, wine and craft beer.
I trained to become an Olympic Athlete in gymnastics and traveled to Russia in 1984 to train with Russian Olympic coaches. This may explain some of my discipline and drive to succeed.
I produce large scale fire productions for summer festivals, which I have been doing since 2000.
I worked in restaurants and nightclubs and fine dining for 20+ years. My love for wine led me to teach wine education to service staff and assist restaurant owners in creating wine lists that accentuate their cuisine.
Meeting Eric Sterling and creating DigitalPour is something I am very proud of. I’ve seen the craft beer industry grow into something beautiful -- the art of the craft being celebrated and I love our participation in that.
