I'm Kate.


I'm a Canadian-born writer and wine nerd. My work focuses on wine and spirits, with a focus on history. 

I currently write for Forbes.com, Toronto Life, Elle Canada, MAXIM Magazine, DuJour, Foodism, Liquor.com, and The Spruce Eats. 

I'm a food and beverage business contributor at Forbes.com. My work can be found in a range of print and online magazines, from Eater, Canada's 100 Best Restaurants, MAXIM, Wine Enthusiast, Foodism, Liquor.com, Toronto Life, Elle Canada, The Spruce, VinePair, DuJour, AskMen, CultureTrip and The Bourbon Review. I started my career as an editor at FLARE Magazine.
Before writing took over, I graduated from McMaster's Bachelor Arts and Engineering Program, and the Savannah College of Art and Design's Masters of Brand Management program. I wrote my Master's thesis on progressive innovation in the American wine marketing world.
I'm working on my WSET III.
