Biography: I have been described as a "well-known beer-drinker-about-town". I sometimes worry about the description but hope it is an acknowledgement of my dedication for craft beer and the craft beer scene in Wellington. That dedication has led to my desire to share my passion, and my knowledge of craft beer, through Craft Beer College.

I have been a consumer beer judge for Wellington in a Pint, The Capital Times, Capital and Consumer magazines. I have also judged the Wellington Brewers Conference homebrew competition. I have been the Volunteer Coordinator for pretty much every beer event held in Wellington including Beervana, the Pacific Beer Expo and the Society of Beer Advocates (SOBA) Mid-Winter Ale Festival. I was the Volunteer Coordinator at the Great Australasian Beer SpecTAPular for two years, taking my passion for beer and beer people global – I still attend GABS regularly.
