My current passion or focus:

Helping our students and BDC graduates achieve their industry and life goals.

Past lives:

Watching nature; reading and researching anything interesting, playing drums in a band, herding house dogs and cats.

Why I brew/distill:

To fill the much-needed niche in an ever-expanding industry and to drink beer in class.

Why I teach at BDC:

I love to share what I know and experienced, how it relates to the real world, how it can help make a better beer or spirit and why caring about EVERYTHING is IMPORTANT

Favorite brewing/distilled related topic:
