By day, I'm a seasoned writer, editor, and photographer covering the intersection between spirits, business, culture and travel. By night I'm a working wine professional.
I'm a food and beverage business contributor at Forbes.com, the drinks writer at Toronto Life and The Toronto Star, a columnist at The Whiskey Wash, wine writer at MAXIM, and a regular contributor to Liquor.com and The Spruce. 
 
My work also appears in Elle CA, InsideHook, The Spruce, Liquor.com, Toronto Life (print + online), Eater, MAXIM, Canada's 100 Best Restaurants (print + online), Porter Magazine, Wine Enthusiast, Foodism (print + online), VinePair, Porter Magazine, DuJour, CultureTrip, and The Bourbon Review (print). I started my career as an editor at FLARE Magazine.
 
Before that, finished my Masters of Brand Management program with a thesis on innovation in the American wine world. I am pursuing my WSET III. 
I was born in Canada (eh), schooled in Georgia (y'all), and spent my adult life in Brooklyn. I'm currently based out of Toronto. Visit me at Dreyfus. Listen to me the following podcasts: Born to FermentWomen on Wine, Ginspired, Unreserved Wine Talk.
