the only triple-threat beverage expert with a COMEDY background and a passion for heavy metal.
I've spent my life pursuing passions for music, comedy, and writing. After performing for years as a rock musician, I began using th microphone and guitar to become a stand-up comedian. While touring all 50 states, I enjoyed visiting breweries during my down time -- enough to start documenting my experiences as a beverage writer. Soon, I was covering beer, wine, and spirits full-time, and educating thirsty audiences across the country. Today, I am realizing my dream of combining my loves of music and the written word as the U.S. Executive Director of Kerrang!, the longest standing rock publication in the UK.
