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 first wine industry job was 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/Wine Buyer at Quality House Wines, thoroughly developing my knowledge of wine and the wine industry. I am pursuing my Certified Specialist of Wine, which is set to be completed in Fall/Winter 2016.

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 writing articles for publications such as Mm. LaFleur and Wine Awesomeness.

WHERE:

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

WHY:

Simple. Because I love writing and I love wine. Combining these two passions has been the greatest joy of my wine industry career thus far.
