I have lived in New York City for the last 15 years, and have been fond of both travel and wine for all of my adult existence. I was once a Manhattan lawyer (and technically still am). I unintentionally followed in the footsteps of Robert Parker and many other disillusioned advocates by swapping a lucrative but dreary career in law for a dream of one in wine. In pursuit of that dream, I worked at Gilt Taste in their wine group start-up. I spent nearly a year building the wine team and wine collection from ground-up and wrote the content for their wine product pages and food pairings. I have spent the last three years studying for my WSET Diploma and am near to graduating.
After completing my project with Gilt, I decided to pursue wine writing permanently. Over the last two years, I have penned a weekly online wine column for legendary NYC publication The Village Voice called Unscrewed, as well as contributed to several publications including Wine & Spirits, Wine Enthusiast, Saveur, Fodors.com, and Palate Press. In addition to Unscrewed, I write a coffee and tea column called Filtered, also for The Village Voice. Both my personal blog and Village Voice column were nominated for Best New Wine Blog of the Year, and Chasing the Vine for Best Photography on a Wine Blog by the American Wine Bloggers Association. Chasing the Vine won Best New Wine Blog of 2013.
