I have had the great fortune of working with many talented, gifted, and passionate people over the years. Most of these people, being in the restaurant business, have passed on their knowledge and passion for food, wine, and service and I now have the opportunity to share what I learned in this arena. I am forever grateful and in their debt and would like to acknowledge them in this bio; Willie Calderale, Jay Hanson, Jacqueline Densing, John “Clam”, Kyle, Artie “Big A” Catufo, Keith Fasano, Tom Bono, Michael “Ginger” Dasilva, Michele, Denis Miciletto, Kyle, Alex Miranda, Jason Neroni, Matt Reguin, and Scott Hirsch. I would also like to acknowledge all of the people who have forever changed the way I view wine and have
showed me the truest expression of; Kermit Lynch, Joe Dressner, Becky Wasserman, Jenny Lefcourt & Francois Ecot, Terry Thiese, Peter Weygandt, and Fran Kysela.
Thank you to all.
