Sacramento, California, United States

Hi! I’m currently living in Sacramento, where I am a freelance journalist and wine communications consultant. I have a Master of Science degree from Medill School of Journalism of Northwestern University with a concentration in magazine publishing and business reporting. Before Medill, I worked in fine dining managing beverage programs for five years, and am a Certified Sommelier through the Court of Master Sommelier program. When I’m not working, I like running half marathons, cooking, mountain hiking, yoga, international travel, and live music. Connect with me!
