My career in the wine industry began in Australia where I attended a graduate program in wine business at the University of Adelaide. I had never thought about a career in wine before my move to Australia, but touring the local wine regions gave me an introduction to a wonderful way of life. What I enjoy most about wine is that it is a global industry and reflects the land, history, food and traditions of where it is produced.
After my studies, I stayed in Australia for a year working at Winestate Magazine and at various tasting rooms on the weekends. I moved to Napa in 2003 and have since made Northern California my new home. I have been fortunate to work in marketing and brand management at Golden State Vintners, Delicato Family Vineyards, Adler Fels and Domaine Chandon. My position at Folio Fine Wine Partners has been a wonderful opportunity to work with a dynamic and enthusiastic team on a portfolio of distinguished wines from all over the world.
