the only triple-threat beverage expert with a COMEDY background and a passion for heavy metal.
I've spent my life pursuing my passions for music, comedy, and writing. After performing for years as a rock musician, I eventually traded in my electric guitar (but kept the microphone) 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 creative and business director for Kerrang!, the longest running rock / metal publication in the UK.
