About

What are you Drinking? is dedicated to exploring the everyday adventures that are enhanced with a drink. In addition to interviews with beverage industry luminaries, it has wine, beer, liquor and cocktail reviews all set in an atmosphere where you’ll typically enjoy these drinks. And it also reviews bars and restaurants for those times when you don’t feel like drinking at home.

I’m an avid beverage enthusiast with a passion for wine. I know my way around the wine industry as a Certified Sommelier in the Court of Master Sommeliers and have previously worked at a winery in Oregon and in wine sales. I even got married at a winery.  I am also a regular contributing Food & Drink writer for Austin CultureMap, Austin Man magazine and Austin Woman magazine. The whimsical booze reviews on the pages of What are you Drinking? were recognized with a 2011 Texas Social Media Award from the Austin American-Statesman.

When I’m not writing about beverages after work, I spend time playing with my kids, drinking with Beautiful Wife, riding my  bike around Austin (sober), playing soccer and dreaming about my retirement  job at a winery, distillery or brewery. During the day, I’m the founder of Pen & Tell Us Strategic Storytelling, providing marketing and communications services to food & beverage companies as well as other clients. My views expressed here are solely mine.
