||I live in Belle Fourche, South Dakota. I am a photographer, artist, avid reader, and of course, a lover of quality libations (both drinking-responsibly-and creating them). I first fell in love with the world of spirits while on a trip to Germany. There I began to taste and learn about the wonderful world of wines, beer, and various fruit liquors.
Shortly after returning to the US, I joined the local chapter of the United States Bartender Guild (USBG) and began attending every bartending and spirits class, tasting, and brand sponsored event I could, as well as listening in whenever a spirit's guru held court at a local establishment.
