WSET Diploma Candidate

Theme Song: True Colors sung by Cyndi Lauper. I’ve been a huge fan of hers since I was a kid and the song taught me to be comfortable in my own skin and free from artifice.

Most Memorable Wine I’ve Ever Tried: I had my first taste of Madeira in 2009 and I was lucky enough for that first taste to be a 1912 vintage.  I had never thought that it would be possible to consume a wine that was created before my grandparents were born.  I still “time travel” at every milestone (mostly these days that means passing WSET Diploma exams).

Favorite Thing in the World: Exploration…whether it is through travel, tasting, or studying a tome on 1,368 vine varieties.

The Most Random Job I’ve Ever Had: I’ve been working professionally since I was 11 so I have plenty from which to choose, but right now in my head it’s a toss-up between being the Easter Bunny in New Mexico, firing (& cleaning) cannons at Tecumseh! in Ohio, or being a trial practice witness on the stand for the National Criminal Defense College in Georgia.

What I Do For Lieb: I shine the spotlight on the greatness that is happening only 80 miles east of NYC.  See me if you’re curious and I’ll glow your way. I’m also the point person for export markets.
