WineMakingNomad

British by blood. Californian by accent. French by education. I lead an adventurous lifestyle and own 3 things; a backpack, a motorcycle in Bordeaux, France, and a camping van in Sydney, Australia. With everything on my back, I am currently traveling around the world, finishing my wine MBA degree, making wines, discovering wineries, and meeting wine professionals with hopes to discover more about wine on a global scale. I think it's important to promote growth from within and challenge yourself as much as possible. To me, life is about balance, relationships and goals. I enjoy absorbing different cultures, music, food, dance, photography, philosophy and wine. My adventures take me to some amazing places, but it's the people that keep refueling my desire to travel. I appreciate every person I've met, every conversation I've had, and try not to forget how lucky I am. A master is one that sees each day as an opportunity in time to create avenues of reality and emotions that are unborn, of realities that are unborn, that the day becomes a frontalization of infinite morals.

First stop: Condom, France!

Bike filled up with gas, bags packed, future unknown….is there a more liberating feeling than the departure of an adventure? I think not. I couldn’t resist. When I saw the name on the map, I had to double-check and make sure it was really true. Wow, seriously, people actually called a town “condom”? This is … Continue reading

Biodynamic Wine & Viticulture: Defined & Demystified

Biodynamic Journey I started working for a biodynamic winery in California after college, and my desire to learn more about the origins and philosophy behind this fascinating practice was born.

Sorry I grow hair……a voice for the man who hates to shave!

It’s the morning of my departure, June 8th 2011, and I’m contemplating facial hair artwork. Staring into the bathroom mirror, I feel like a solider ready for battle. My beard is a dense as Frotto’s forest in Lord of the Rings, and my blade is a like a dull weapon……………………….I already feel defeated. I’m 25% … Continue reading

Haircuts, Life’s Chokeholds & Things You Should Always Appreciate

I’m trying to grow up, I got a haircut today. I’m not that excited about it, I told the barber to give me something French and don’t chop too much off. Apparently my French was good, because he gave me  a really Euro look. I’ve hit a frustrating patch. Nothing is going my way, I’m … Continue reading

How Agriculture & Viticulture Took A Wrong Turn

Understanding creates acceptance, so grab a nice glass of wine and have a read. Let’s get you up to date: Agriculture has been a method of survival for over 10,000 years, and most of it through the labor of human sweat and animals. It wasn’t until the late 19th century and early 20th century, with … Continue reading

What is a “QUALITY” wine?

While pursuing my wine MBA, I have been traveling around the world with a backpack and a wine glass for the last 18 months. Between my classes, I’ve focused my time on learning more about wine, culture and biodynamic viticulture practices. As a student, I seek knowledge. As a wine lover, I seek quality. However, how … Continue reading

Fake limps, Hovercrafts & Self Taught Motorcycle Lessons

I was planning to be in Europe all summer, and needed a mode of transportation that would allow me to blend in with the Euros and look good doing it. Obviously, a hovercraft was first my choice. However, I didn’t want my French girlfriend to become insanely jealous when all the topless, European woman gather … Continue reading

I Didn’t Choose Wine As My College Major…..it Chose Me!

The first three years of my collegiate career could be summarized as a dodgeball match between academic probation and myself. Each quarter I was greeted with the same warm engineering (greeting), “Welcome to a ridiculous equation class, my name is professor foreign language you can’t understand, 60% of you in this room are going to … Continue reading
