15 year wine industry veteran from California. I'm now a local in Europe thanks to dual passports, a love for all things European and my Spanish fiancée. Currently located in Spain, I spend my free time traveling to lesser known and visited wine regions as well as areas with great food and lots of history or hiking.
My focus is on finding better ways to travel like a local (housesitting, staying in small locally owned B&B's or renting local apartments) and connect meaningfully with people and regions while traveling (often through food and drink). When I'm not writing travel articles or working on freelance marketing and communications projects you can find me hiking, drinking good wine, or hanging out somewhere near the ocean.
