About the author


I'm a wine enthusiast on my personal wine journey who found most books on wine either too textbook, too long, or packed with information I don't need or want to know. Eventually I was collecting the information that I found pertinent to enjoying wine without a degree in viticulture. I thought others might like to have the short cut to the core material as well. Thus was born the idea for The Little Wine Guide. So, join me on this wine discovery journey! I have a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration and have worked in Fortune 500 companies and Department of Defense most of my working life. I am a Colorado native who loves the mountains and wildlife, but I don't ski, I currently volunteer at a cat shelter, played clarinet for a short time, and dabble in drawing, watercolor, and acrylic painting.
