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!
