  • I am a culinary kid, grew up in kitchen and restaurants, graduate from Culinary Institute of America and now live in a happy small town where I work for the Boys & Girls Club as the Garden and Culinary coordinator.

    I brew as much as I can, three days a week, making thirty to thirty-six gallons per week. Love every minute of it, the process, formulating recipes, wrestling with fermentation, and always enjoying my own brew and sharing it with everyone around me.

    I make dry cured salumis in a converted fridge. I make charcuterie for a living, but still like
