President ~ CEO / COO ~ Wine Industry Expertise ~ Regional Sales Management ~ Luxury Wine Connoisseur & Collector ~ 

WSET III / CSW


With a proven track record in running a successful business, an insatiable passion and extensive knowledge of the world of wine, I blend hard work and a straightforward style with a desire for learning, educating, mentoring, and sharing my knowledge of fine wines. 

I especially enjoy the social aspects of wine that bring together people of different opinions and tastes to share in the experience. My pragmatic demeanor and attention to detail have earned me respect for providing factual, useful information and finding the right business solutions for any given situation. 

Known as generous and dedicated, I create value by attending to the details and negotiating from the strength of knowledge and experience.

Having the background of driving a multi-million dollar corporation for over 20 years, my business management experience, revenue growth skills, ability to form effective sales distribution networks, relationship building techniques, and mentoring skills speak for themselves. As the President and Co-Founder of an Oil and Gas Exploration company, I’ve handled the daily business components, investors, vendors, general contractors, cost analysis for drilling, and have helped build the company from the ground floor to a profitable organization with annual revenues of over 8 million dollars.

My desire is to combine my business acumen, sales management experience, organizational leadership, and relationship building skills, with my passion and knowledge of fine wine to further my professional career into the luxury wine industry.
