About me

Gender MALE
Occupation Retail Wine Buyer/Retail Manager
Location Michigan, United States
Introduction I live in Michigan where I work in retail wine sales. I love wine and consider myself somewhat of an expert (I did pass the first level of the Court of Master Sommeliers exam). My friends are a very important part of my life. I lived in Oregon for 9 years when I was growing up and I've been to Switzerland to visit family (my mom is Swiss). I've had the great opportunity to see some of the most beautiful parts of this country and Europe. The greatest joy was in 2003 when I went on a wine-trip to Australia. AMAZING!! I was in college radio (WUMD) years ago and I'm extremely grateful for the friendships I've gained from my time there. I'm very lucky to have such intelligent, thoughtful, and wonderful friends. Music, food, wine and friends are a passion and they all go well together.
