I'm fun. No really, some people just say that but I'm serious, I make fun my business. I've been marketing, managing and organizing fun professionally and love it. I'm a Co-Founder at Thirst Boston, the successful Boston cocktail festival in it's 3rd year. I also headed up the first and second editions of Camp Runamok - an educational bartender summer camp in Kentucky. Additionally I helped to make Portland Cocktail Week as awesome (and educationally focused) as possible. I can do anything from a BBQ bus tour, a promotional road trip in a vintage Airstream trailer to a seminar heavy confrence. You have a wacky idea? I'll make it happen.

I got my wine chops as National Account Manager on Wine Riot for Second Glass , a wine events start-up with events in five major cities. Before that, I was GM at Savant Project, a restaurant in Boston. Oh and was named one of the 2009 25 Most Stylish Bostonians in the process.

Like I said, I make fun my business and food, wine and spirits my passion. I also love to garden, but that's a different story.
