Coleridge described the aesthetic as that which engages the whole soul. You could say I'm on the prowl searching for aesthetic experiences in life about which to write including wine, food, travel, and art.
My education includes a bachelors in Literature/Creative Writing, a bachelors in environmental studies, a graduate certificate in Education, and a Masters in English. I have many years of experience as a writing teacher, journalist, marketer, website developer, newsletter editor, and blogger.
I started my Art Predator blog in November 2007 and began Wine Predator the following year.
I attended the First Wine Bloggers Conference in Sonoma October 2008 and the second one in July 2009.
In November 2009, I went to the European Wine Bloggers Conference then to the Alentejo Region of Portugal on a wine tour sponsored by Enoforum WInes.
In 2010, I won a scholarship to attend the Wine Bloggers Conference in Walla Walla as well as a pre-conference trip to learn more about Washington wine.
