I have been a waiter, restaurant manager, high school English teacher, writer, editor and now sommelier. I also am a part owner, with my ex, of a wine shop, Six Corners, in Westhampton Beach. At this point, wine is one thing we can safely talk about.
Before all that I graduated from Johns Hopkins University with a major in English, and a minor in French. (Handy when in France!) I earned a master’s degree in English from New York University.
I love going to school, so advanced study in wine was almost a foregone conclusion. I completed the WSET Diploma in Wine and Spirits at Mary Ewing-Mulligan’s International Wine Center in New York. Thus, I hope to use this blog to further my education, pay closer attention to the wine I’m tasting and help promote Long Island Wine Country, which is filled with a lot of lovely dedicated people.
