Grew up in Minnetonka, Minnesota. Spent a year in Brasil, a few months in Belize, Norway and another year in Portland, Oregon. Went to school in Moorhead(next door to Fargo, ND), Minnesota.
Have a degree in sculpture and painting. Spent a couple years running an art school, and teaching. Then a year in a butcher shop, which led to 2 years working as a chef at a ladies gym. Followed this by 4 years running a wine shop, that happened to specialize in beer(1200 labels), bourbon, and amazing wines.
Finally married a girl from Chicago, and moved to Spain, Madrid to start. A year and half later we moved to Barcelona and 8 years later Porto, Portugal where we run Vrazon Digital Wine Media
, along with a consumer website all about Iberian wines, foods and culture
Today have a business that focuses on wine and social media. We host a lot of events, and have a few consulting gigs. We also for hire:
Today we have 1 cat, drink wine every night, dine out with friends, and travel to wineries in the countryside of Spain for work and rarely pleasure, though I never said work was that bad.
Love to eat, travel, hike, camp, hang out with friends and take lot's of pictures. You can see them here: flickr.com/photos/obis or here: 500px
