Life is Good!
My first career was in modeling at the age of 12, I remained in the fashion industry until 1989. From college on I worked part time and full time in the restaurant & bar industry 1979 to 1992.My big break into the sales side of F&B was when I went to work for Southern Wine and Spirits; Florida. One year later I was recruited by the Boston Beer Company where I found my true niche' and grew for 13 years with Sam Adams Beer in the National Account class of trade for on premise. I was recruited to FIJI Water in 2005, which was also a great career move and loved working for the company for 3 years, and made friends with many great chefs, and their F&B team members. I was recruited away from FIJI in October of 2008. As of July I find myself looking for the next great adventure and know it will be in wine, or working closely with the chef industry.

Hi there! I am the one who sent Herve the invite and he has turned into a maniac. Go the Member page and sort by points and you will see what I mean.

Do you know Rick Kern? He is a good pal of mine from my Wine South days and I sent him an invite tonight.

I sent you a Friend Request.

Have fun!

Hello Mo,
How are things going? I am glad you join this website.
Could you please ask Jim to contact me through email. I would like to order Jeroboams of Pinot Noir for my personal wine cellar. Will you two be here for the High Museum? I hope you well and Happy New Year.

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

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.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

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" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
