By day, I am an IT professional for a software company that creates tools for the film and game industries.  I am currently enrolled in the WSET Diploma program. Curious about the art and science of winemaking, I am feeding this interest through the Winemaking Certificate extension program at UC Davis. In 2011, I placed 3rd in the amateur category at the Canadian Wine Tasting Challenge thus inspiring my quest to learn how to become a better taster. It's fun to practice!

My hobbies include DJing, dabbling in electronic music production, dancing (nothing beats a dancefloor at 3am), and figure skating.  One of my long term goals is to finally complete my ARCT Piano Performer's Certificate with the Royal Conservatory of Music.
