Formerly an art director, I dove into the food and wine industry with the same level of interest and engagement that I did when I worked as an artist. My passion for cooking led me to the insane decision to take a job in a private club where I took over, among other things, the food and beverage program. In the winters for fun I worked as a line cook with a wild Italian chef. I have a level IV Wine Studies Certification from Boston University, am a French Wine Scholar and am currently working toward my Italian Wine Scholar certification. I spent some time living in Rome which cemented my passion for all things Italian. I also spent part of 2010 teaching at a school in a small village at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro, though my Italian is much better than my Swahili. I joined the staff at Porter Square Wine & Spirits in 2016 to help elevate the vibe. I love pouring wine in the store and turning customers on to new things.
