Our Crew


You have three sentences to tell your story. Go:
Born and raised in Ohio, finished up university and spent the last 10 years living between the Pacific NW and Colorado. During that time, was fortunate to have a career that took me from street food meccas like Malaysia/Vietnam, to ancient Mayan cities in Guatemala, to the cider regions of northern Spain. Now residing back in Buckeye state, I’m enjoying the perks of living in one of the US’s best kept secrets, while providing the good people of the MW with the absolute best in US crafted ciders.

What’s your favorite non-cider activity in the cider house?
Not sure I’m at liberty to discuss outside the states of Colorado, Oregon and Washington…

If you are fired tomorrow, what will you be doing next week?
Hopping a flight to Japan, depending on the time of year, I’ll be contemplating my next career move from the top of a run or the beach.

What alcoholic beverage is most frightening to you?
One with amazing branding and a taste left to be desired.

If you could bring one person onto the Downeast team who would it be and why?
Steve Jobs. Steve was a marketing/branding genius and culture shaper. Any idea/product/organization would benefit from the backing of such a visionary.
