Working a beer engine at the Winter Warmer festival in Asheville, NC

I am a WinoBeeroFoodo. An equal opportunity drinker. A food geek. My fascination led me to take classes like Chocolate Chemistry, Food Microbiology, Agribusiness Management, and Health Consumerism while pursuing my BSA in Food Science from The University of Georgia. Go DAWGS! My last big adventure before graduation was a very influential trip to Tuscany to study Viticulture and Enology for a month (read drink and eat myself into a coma). Back on this side of the pond, I made the epic move to California to do Sales and Marketing for a boutique winery and passed the level 1 Court of Master Sommelier’s Exam and later the Cicerone Certified Beer Server Exam. Flash forward and I am no longer in the alcohol industry (I fix ears nows!), but it is still a great love of mine. A wise person once said, “Everything in moderation, including moderation”. I will always be in search of that elusive concept in life called balance.
