"I grew up in Ellicott City, MD, where I developed my love for the food and beverage industry. In high school, I was an avid member of my ProStart team, where we competed in culinary competitions. I then moved to South Florida where I attended Johnson & Wales University, North Miami, and got my A.S Degree in Culinary Arts. Through my classes, I discovered my true passion: Wine.
"I transferred to UCF Rosen College of Hospitality Management, where I was fully immersed in classes centered around beverage management. As an undergrad, I took classes on Wine, Beer, Spirits, and Service, and through those classes, my focus turned to studying the history and culture of wine. As a junior in college, at the age of 21, I passed my Introductory Sommelier Certification. A little over a year later, I passed my Certified Sommelier Exam, which tested me on Wine Theory, Blind Tasting Ability, and Service Knowledge.
"In my 10+ years in the restaurant industry, I have been a part of the service team of incredible companies including The Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel at Mi Casa Taqueria and Tequila Bar. I then had the amazing opportunity to be part of the opening team for Wine Bar George in Disney Springs, created by Master Sommelier George Miliotes. They feature over 200 different wines via tap, glass, and bottle, and have been awarded the Best Micro Wine List by The World of Fine Wine.
"All these experiences have led me to my amazing position here at The Citrus Club as a Server and Sommelier. My passion and goal is to both teach and introduce new wine experiences to our members and the incredible staff. My favorite part of what I do is having a member taste and experience a new wine that I introduced to them and being able to share that moment with them. I look forward to growing and continuing my career at the Citrus Club. I am currently 25, a huge Baltimore Ravens and Orioles fan, and I am recently engaged to my incredible fiancee’."
