I worked ten years in the food industry then started my own gardening business for Bed and Breakfasts and Restaurants. I then went into import and exports which I have done for the past 14 years, managing International logistics into the US for mainly non resident importers from Canada.
My love is productions mainly for film and theater, a big part of my creativity ideas stem from the restaurant and hospitality industry it just really inspires me.

Here is Gary's site, he definitely has his own flavor, I really enjoy his style though.
That is pretty awesome you have sommelier classes under your belt. One of the characters in a screenplay I am working on is a sommelier, I may have to ask your advice on some things as I develop his character.
Thank God for bad wine, because I have issues with pouring perfectly tasting drinking wine into my stews…J
I haven't heard of Gary Vanderchucks but I'm definitely navigating there in a little while! I took some sommelier classes back in culinary school but they were so basic I don't even remember some of the things I was taught! I usually just hit wine spots in NYC and ask a worker what are their favorite wines or great recommendations and I have literally walked out with real jems. So I've kind of build my taste for wines through trial and error on my own throughout the years! I've also had some horrible experiences with wines that came close to tasting like dish water. I just use those for stews or quick sauces, once the alcohol burns out they actually taste better LOL!
When I have time I'm definitely going back to read your other blogs. I already forwarded Ambient Muse to all my single girlfriends here in NY! The fear of dinning alone is a plague that must be stopped!! LOL speak to you soon..

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.
At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?
Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.
Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" positioned 50,000 km from a telescope to enable imaging of planets about distant stars. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."
