Originally from Cincinnati, I spent the last decade in Chicago working in the wine and restaurant biz at places like Webster Wine Bar, Telegraph and Rootstock. Most recently I was the Beverage Director at Parachute Restaurant since opening in 2014.

Wine is my passion, and when I'm not working on my next project, I'm meeting producers, distributors, sommeliers, and other people deeply curious about wine to learn their stories and spark collaborations.

Outside of wine, I draw inspiration from my family and friends, music, and triathlon.
