WHO:

I completed my Bachelor’s degree at CUNY Hunter College with a double major in French Language and Italian Language, along with a minor in English and additional studies in Spanish and Polish. My wine industry career began at Sud de France Developpement in Manhattan, where I learned the foundations and basics of wine, with a focus on wines of the Languedoc Roussillon. After a month long independent wine travel through France, I took a position as a Wine Consultant at Quality House Wines, working my way up to the Wine Buyer position, where I thoroughly developed my knowledge of wine and the wine industry. I became a Certified Specialist of Wine in Spring of 2017.

WHAT:

My English minor was creative writing focused and I began writing independently when I started traveling abundantly. I studied abroad in Florence in the winter of 2012, followed by extensive travels in France, including briefly living there. I began my wine writing career by launching the official blog of Quality House Wines, then transitioning into freelance writing for publications such as Mm. LaFleur, Wine Awesomeness, VinePair, Palate Press, and Drizly, including a year long Staff Writer position at VinePair.

WHERE:

I am based in New York City, though travel abundantly and have a strong community in Paris, France.

WHY:

A mutual love for writing and wine led me to combine my two passions and take on the most exciting leg of my wine industry career yet!
