BIOGRAPHY: Originally from Kentucky, I graduated from the University of Kentucky with a degree in Chemical Engineering. Having grown up in bourbon country, I decided early on to get into the spirits industry, which I was fortunate enough to do in college. I helped start up Town Branch Bourbon and also worked at Wild Turkey for four years. I moved to Memphis in 2015 to help open Old Dominick Distillery.
