Adventure, wine, and creativity.
I grew up in a small town in Washington and sparked an interest in wine that lead me to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Global Wine Studies from Central Washington University. My studies included some time in France that proved to be my first real adventure. Needless to say, I caught the travel bug.
That lead me to working in Alaska during the summers between going to school and working at wineries in Central Washington and Walla Walla. After falling passionately in love with Alaska, but still wanting to pursue my wine career...I decided to move to Alaska.
I have the best of both worlds now, living in small Alaskan town and writing for some of my favorite wineries and wine blogs.
In my free time, you can see me walking the beach, drinking wine on my porch, fishing, and exploring the nooks and crannies of Alaska.
