National Accounts Manager, Off-Premise
As a third generation San Franciscan, I grew up listening to stories of my Italian grandfather walking the streets of North Beach, selling his dad’s bootlegged wine out of his wagon. Unfortunately, my family’s venture in the wine world was short-lived as my great-grandfather and his barrels were busted by the Feds.
My career in the wine industry began 15 years ago after switching careers from elementary school teaching to wine and spirit sales. I have built my skill set in the Chain World as both distributor and supplier as a lead account manager for Young’s Market Company, Epic Wines and most recently Delicato Family Wines.
Bringing wines from around the globe to glass in hand is a personal passion, and I’m excited to work with some of the best family wines in the world through Folio Wine Partners. I live in San Francisco with my wife, four children and a dog that wasn’t my idea. In my spare time, I enjoy coaching my kids, cooking new dishes, and trying to hold my own on the soccer pitch.
