Biography

My career exposes me to all facets of the food & wine industry.

As a writer, I have written for both national and regional publications as well as editing an online food and wine magazine. This includes a best-selling cookbook for Perseus, a popular series of wine trade articles for Daily Be...

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Yes. I started on a used electric Smith Corona. That was back in the pre-internet days, so I don't think that earns me any points.

What does it mean to be a journalist?

I means being able to be able to view the subject from a vantage that will benefit the largest number of readers.

What's the best pitch you ever got?

The best pitch was to travel to France and write about Bordeaux, all expenses paid.

Awards

Best Wine Reviews, Wine Blog Awards

2014 - Reviews
The first American Wine Blog Awards were given in 2007. Created by Tom Wark and hosted on his blog Fermention, the awards quickly became the leading means of identifying excellence in wine blogging. Wine blogs are nominated for awards by the general public and the top finalists for each awards category are selected by a panel of judges. Awards are given based on a combination of the judges’ opinions and a public vote. In 2010, the Wine Blog Awards underwent major changes and administration was given to the folks at the Wine Bloggers Conference. Changes were made to the awards themselves and this website was established as the awards’ home. The year of the award represents the year they are given and received, not the preceding year. From 2010 through 2014, the awards were announced live each year at the Wine Bloggers Conference. Starting in 2015, the timeline was changed to announce winners via social media prior to the conference with awards given in a ceremony at the conference, allowing winners to make arrangements to attend. Please use Twitter hashtag #WineBlogAwards for discussion about the awards.
