I enjoy making wine in my spare time. I have experience in vineyards with pruning and harvesting grapes. I also crush, ferment, press, age, and bottle my own amateur wines.


Wine Blog

I started a blog to help myself learn more about wine as well as explore unique wines from around the world. Since then, it has helped me learn about wines across all 50 United States as well as launched another hobby of mine: photography.



Just a hobbyist photographer taking pictures of things that interests me. I do have a few pictures on Shutterstock and as NFTs (Non-fungible token) on Rarible, OpenSea, and Objkt though.
