I am a Vancouver-based writer with a passion for travel, craft beer, and gastronomy. As President of the Vancouver branch of the Campaign for Real Ale, publisher of the B.C. Beer Blog, Executive Director of the Craft Brewers Guild of B.C., and co-founder of the Vancouver Craft Beer Week festival, I played a leading role in helping change British Columbia’s beer culture. Currently, I am developing a guidebook to craft breweries in China. My first book is called How to Drink Beer in Mandarin.
