Story
Introduction
I'm the founder of NorCalWine.com where I write primarily about the wines of Northern California. I contribute to other publications too, including Snooth and SOMM Journal.

I'm also an instructor for the San Francisco Wine School. I primarily teach in the CWAS and CSW programs. 

I hold the following wine-related credentials: WSET Diploma, Certified Sommelier, certified California Wine Appellation Specialist and Certified Specialist of Wine, certified Level 3 WSET Instructor. I'm also a graduate of the Napa Valley Vintners Wine Educators Academy.

Other interests include food and dining, technology (especially Apple products), baseball, art, music and goings on the SF Bay Area.
