About

Growing up on the west coast, I’m fairly certain IPA runs through my blood. Though my beer life started with Hefeweizen and Belgian-style Wit, my taste buds were ignited by hops and I am now passionately attracted to everything fermented.

Formerly a bartender at a craft beer and wine bar on the San Francisco peninsula, I strive to make unfamiliar products approachable for everyone.  I don’t feel customers should be talked at,  but rather listened to.

As a Certified Cicerone®, I possess a thorough understanding of beer and its quality in the service environment. I’m available to set up draft systems, consult on food pairing and help improve your beer service program. I currently reside in the Willamette Valley in Oregon and have no shortage of amazing beer within reach.
