Managing Editor

As Managing Editor, I oversee the production of editorial content for our website and all social media channels. I am often asked what type of beer I enjoy. Hands down, stouts. I grew up watching my Dad make beer, and have appreciated the work and love that goes into every batch. I enjoy trying new craft beers and would happily offer my feedback if samples were to arrive on my doorstep.

Something happening in the industry you'd like me to cover? Do you have a comment, question, or suggestion? Want my feedback on your beverage? I keep a virtual open door; contact me at: or 518-635-0375.

Thanks for reading and I look forward to hearing from you!
