I am an optimistic person. I believe in the good in people. My
grandmother was the most influential person in my life thus far.
She taught me how to love, laugh, be kind, social and how to make
Lasagna..Sunday Suppers at her house inspired me to want to be in
the restaurant and hospitality business. I am a self-starter, a
natural born entrepreneur. I love to turn things on their sides and
think outside the box. I opened a wine bar and wine school 3 years
ago and just last month a second place. Sometimes I wonder if I am
crazy for having more than 1 but I couldn't help myself. I want to
keep growing and learning and pushing myself
What I’m doing with my life

is something about those Dr's that I can't stop watching it. The

If I weren't in the wine business I would be a forensic

evolution of Hip-Hop Dancing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Serving wine and kissing babies....Just kidding about the latter.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I had spinal meningitis as a kid and was in the hospital for 3
months. I was lucky I didn't die and thus feel extremely grateful.
