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.

Vending machines generally offer up sodas, candy bars and chips. Not so for the one created by TED Fellow Gabe Barcia-Colombo. This artist has dreamed up a DNA Vending Machine, which dispenses extracted human DNA, packaged in a vial along with a collectible photo of the person who gave it.
