President + Founder
From small beginnings in New Zealand, I started my career in Los Angeles as Marketing Manager for Tourism New Zealand, championing the country’s award-winning destination marketing campaign. In the five years that followed I moved to New York to take on an exciting role as Senior Marketing Director at Travelzoo. During my time in the travel industry I was named as one of the top 35 executives under 35 in the online travel industry by PhoCusWright. My career moved into wine in 2011 when I spent a year as Senior Director of Experiences at Lot18, a private sale site for wine enthusiasts. In 2016 I completed a Diploma of Wine & Spirits from the Wine & Spirits Education Trust (WSET). Between 2018 -2019 I was the Marketing Director for International Brands at Jackson Family Wines. For my professional bio please visit my LinkedIn profile. I also write about my wine adventures at winerycritic.com.
