Originally from Sonoma Valley California, I have been working in the wine industry for over 10 years. I started working in sales and wine tourism then went into winemaking in 2014. In 2016 I moved to France to pursue a Master’s degree in viticulture, enology and soil science at the University of Burgundy. I am currently part of the Terroir Cartography team at the French Institute of Vines and Wine in Angers, France. I am passionate about plants, fungi, travel and, of course, wine and viticulture.
