I was born in Salem, Oregon-USA and raised in central British Columbia, Canada. I still reside in the Pacific Northwest in the small community of Parkdale, OR on the northern slopes of Mt Hood.

I joined Lallemand Brewing in May 2017 after entering the brewing industry back in 1992. I spent 19 years in several brew-houses and cideries (Bridgeport, Full Sail, Gordon-Biersch, Thunder Island, Crispin) with the rest of my time with an English malt company (Muntons) and a liquid yeast manufacturer (Wyeast). My current position is Senior Key Account Manager and am current responsible for the distribution market in the US.

When not drinking beer, I am an avid fisherman and snowboarder, and also an amateur sailor with a 26’ sailboat on the Columbia River.
