Market Sales Manager, Southern California
I was born in Southern Oregon city of Klamath Falls. After graduating from Oregon State, I moved to Orange County, California to work a summer job and ended up staying nearly 17 years. In addition to management roles at Disneyland, I was the Operations Manager for The Robert Mondavi Wine & Food Center in Costa Mesa, CA. It was at this time that I learned the importance of wine and its role in enhancing the dining experience. I also had a chance to work with passionate wine professionals at one of Napa Valley’s iconic wineries. I was hooked at this point and eager to learn more about the wine business. After working on the distributor and winery side of the business in both Oregon and Southern California, I am pleased to be managing the Los Angeles market for Folio Fine Wine Partners.
In my spare time I enjoy following the Oregon State Beavers and enjoying beautiful Southern California with my wife Bridget and two daughters Kaitlyn and Kelly.
