About Me


To build a world class organic winery in Sonoma and share it with friends


British by birth, American by accent, French by education.

Born and raised in a village with more ducks than people, outside of Oxford, England, I moved to Sonoma, California when I was 11 years old. Studied wine at Cal Poly University while taking every chance I had to travel. I enjoy making new friends and being surrounded by great food, great wine and great company. Adventure is key to growth, which has promoted me to do some pretty spontaneous and irrational things. I once rode on the outside of a train for 300 miles (SLO to LA). I have smuggled myself back into the country in the trunk of a Mexican's car, because I forgot my greencard. I have run with bulls, dove with great white sharks, riden a motorcycle around Australia, flow myself around California wine country, made wine on 3 continents, and now own and operate a small, premium, organic winery in Sonoma, California with my friends and younger sister. I Love playing sports and staying active and healthy. I appreciate things I have and try to stay positive in every situation, oh, and I LOVE wine!


You can't control very much in life, so take advantage of things you can control: your mood, your energy, your participation, your actions. Be positive and positive things will happen, and I feel bad for people who don't find time to laugh.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I participated by sleeping on couches, offering good wine and conversation to people around the world while completing my wine MBA. Now it's my turn to lend a couch to people in need.


Life changing.


I enjoy wine, sports, being healthy, bamboo, philosophy, flying small airplanes and blindfolded ping pong tournaments. I've also discovered a new interest in piano, and just purchased one for my living room. My next goal is to learn how to make cheese! I love herbal teas and I'm fascinated with energy, homeopathy and acupunture.

Teach, Learn, Share

I enjoy talking about wine, because it's a fascinating beverage.

I can also teach you how to ride a motorcycle, I actually learned from a couchsurfer back in Bordeaux, summer 2010.

I am learning Piano and can teach some Adele songs.

I can also help you write a business plan and understand how to run a successful business.

I want to learn about music, languages & culture.
