I have ten years of experience in the retail wine business.
I’ve worked in restaurants and bakeries in Flagstaff and Chicago.
I live in Seattle, the whole time in Capitol Hill.
I’m also fond of beer and cider.
I will dazzle or dismay you with an overabundance of parenthetical asides and exclamation points. (Seriously! It’s who am!)
