I’ve been writing about spirits and cocktails (and less frequently about music and baseball) (and even less frequently about politics) for the Huffington Post since 2007. My booze writing has also shown up in Wine Enthusiast and Digital Bar Magazine. Before that I owned a record store on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, which my old customers seem to miss far more than I do. I’ve been married since 2005 and a dad since 2010. My general frame of mind is exhausted but happy.
