Like many people, wine found me indirectly. My story goes from Wall Street to Wine Country and back.

After 10 years on Wall Street, I moved to Northern California for a break from my seven-day workweek. Eventually I returned to NYC, where I now have the opportunity to personalize wine for all of my clients. It was a long journey, but I truly love what I do – is there anything better than that? I am a classically trained pianist, competitive ballroom dancer, certified wine educator, and rookie sailor.
