I am an innate marketer, an educator by profession and a wine aficionado at heart. I have spent the majority of my career in academia, but my wine story goes back to decades of independent studies, academic research, multiple wine certifications, and I am still learning.
I am a world traveler with incurable wanderlust. I have lived and worked on 5 continents, visited over 55 countries and speak 5 languages. I blend in and feel at home anywhere in the world; I’m currently based in California and happy to be minutes away from Napa Valley.
My fascination with wine culture led me to meet some of the greatest wine legends and producers around the world. I have had the fortune to be introduced to wines that have impacted the world’s wine industry. I am a foodie, who believes that food and wine are the heart and soul of good living. Through many years of travel around the world, I have developed a distinctive palate for eclectic cuisines and have mastered the art of food and wine pairing.
I invite you to join me on my journey and look forward to sharing my wine stories from around the world, while building bridges between wine producers, wine consumers and wine enthusiasts.
