ABOUT ME

My career in Hospitality and the Beverage Industry spans more than 20 years. I've spent the last 12 years as a Beverage Leader with the Disneyland Resort overseeing the Bar and Wine Program for Club 33 as well as serving as Manager and Sommelier for 21 Royal.  My work, creations, and passions have been featured through media outlets such as the Robb Report, Modern Luxury, Orange Coast Magazine, and The Tasting Panel.

Prior to joining Disney in 2008 I worked as a Leader and Trainer for numerous restaurant entities including Wolfgang Puck, Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, and The Patina Group.  Along with direct restaurant and bar experience, I spent many years working in liquor and wine distribution.  I've represented 1000’s of high profile wine, beer and spirit brands throughout Southern California, among them Louis Roederer, Far Niente, Michter's, and Silver Oak.  

In May of 2020 I launched The Liquid Home with the goal of helping everyone find more joy in their lives, one glass at a time.

Thank you for visiting!

Cheers!
