Growing up in the air force, I moved around a lot as a kid. Today, I call Bellevue home but with mom and dad in Denver, I get to have two homes. I moved to Northern Kentucky about 15 years ago, and after a collection of short lived jobs, I got my first bartending job at the crazy fox saloon. This started my, unknown to me at the time, career in the bar business. Oh yeah… I also met my wife there. Outside of the crazy fox, I’ve worked in a few other small, local bars and restaurants, including Virgils Cafe. I like working for small businesses and I also like small batch beers.

So, about five years ago I started brewing beer at home. At first it was about learning more about beer, then it became an obsession, and it turns out, its also fun. When Ron and I started brewing together, people tasted our beers and really liked them, and wanted more. That’s when we started focusing on opening a brewery. Being from Colorado, I’ve been dreaming of this.

Co-Founder, Sales and Marketing,
and Front House Operations

I have been brewing beer in Eric’s kitchen with him for about three years now. It all started when I asked him for some of his dark beer to serve to my guests at my wedding reception. After tasting his great beer, and seeing all the happy people drinking it (all) up, I knew I wanted in. With as much as I enjoyed trying different beers and being creative, I felt like I HAD to brew beer.

I am leaving behind a successful career in real estate, specifically new home sales and marketing. Before that I was a computer nerd for Dell and for a minute, I even thought I wanted to be a rock star. But after brewing with Eric for some years now, it became clear that this was something we needed to do. With my background in the business side of things, and his in bar and hospitality, we found pretty quickly that I provided the yin to Eric’s yang. (yes I said Eric’s yang).
