While I do enjoy other beverages, I have always been a craft beer lover and I am always searching out all things craft beer. I have been able to enjoy some wonderful beers while meeting awesome people and I believe that’s what it’s all about.
I grew up in Bangor and attended college at Johnson & Wales University in Providence, RI. After college I worked in the food industry as a corporate chef, but then decided to relocate back to Maine and pursue a career in the beverage industry. I have lived in Portland now for about 5 years. I live on the West end with my wife and my dog Moose. Moose is often my sidekick on my craft beer adventures. He takes car rides north with me to pick up growlers or walks into town to sit on a patio while I enjoy a beer.
While I was a Distiller and Sales Rep for New England Distilling, I learned that the best thing about this industry is meeting all kinds of great people and trying the newest things. I love this state and everything it has to offer. Maine has some amazing breweries, wineries and distilleries. I am looking forward to being able to help others learn more about all that Maine has to offer.
