What am I doing?
I write and consult on digital media projects, conduct mezcal tastings, and cover spirits in this rapidly changing world.
I write Spirit Lives, a Substack newsletter that covers the world of distilled spirits. I also write about spirits for Mezcalistas and other publications. Most recently I wrote about a key sustainability project in Guanajuato, mezcal brands who opt not to certify, the world of Armagnac and how some tequila producers are going back to their roots.
I always am working on some fun projects. Right this second I am translating Domingo Garcia’s “Mezcal : un espirituoso artesanal de clase mundial” which will be published in an English edition in 2023.
Follow me on Instagram to see where I am, what I’m cooking, eating and drinking. I like to travel, eat, drink, look at art, and learn more about the world around me. You can follow my progress through my maps:
