My story is quite an adventure, but it is a sign of a life well lived. I consider myself part geek, but in all the good ways. I love learning and figuring out what makes things work. I love exploring people, places, history, culture and music, as well as learning what makes a good bourbon just to name a few! I also like to think of myself as a bit of a connoisseur. And one of the most important traits a connoisseur possesses is the ability to recognize some of the less visible or obvious notes or flavors and to value, appreciate, and understand that sometimes it’s the unexpected combinations that create a truly remarkable end result.
