He still serves as Wine Director of Walnut Street Café in Philadelphia. He is a Food & Wine host for Playboy and a founding member of Winemakers & Sommeliers for California Wildfire Relief.
His 30 years of experience in the restaurant industry, and Sommelier career has given him access to four of the world's greatest wine cellars.
