I am a certified beer judge, travel photographer, and software developer from Boulder, Colorado. I use this site to chronicle my beer adventures shared through photography and stories, with a focus on traditional old world brewing practices. I prefer craftsmanship and elegance over excess, authenticity over gimmickry, and sensory analysis over historical context. My photography subjects outside of beer include ornithology and storm chasing.
Birre Botti e Boccali In Franconia
March 2015, Publigiovane Editore
My photographs are featured in the upcoming book Birre Botti e Boccali In Franconia (Italian), released March 22, 2015. The book is authored by Manuele Colonna of Ma Che Siete Venuti A Fa’, who I consider one of the most knowledgeable persons in the world with respect to Franconian lager.
I held my first photo exhibition at the inaugural FrankenBierFest in Rome, the weekend of March 20-22, 2015 at La Limonaia di Villa Torlonia. The event is organized in part by Ma Che Siete Venuti A Fa’.
