Personal Quote
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!

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

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.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

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?

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

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.
