“In my past career as a pastry chef, I worked around the country with local and culturally expressive ingredients and methods. Upon moving to Portland, Oregon in 2001, I fell in love with the abundance of excellent ingredients and the creative lifestyle. I worked as the pastry chef for farm-to-table pioneer Greg Higgins, solidifying my connection to food and place. I later founded Bees & Beans, an award winning confection company with local honey, bean to bar domestic chocolate, and definitive Willamette Valley ingredients. As a crafter of spirits I take the same approach, featuring hand selected, place specific ingredients to capture the spirit of the pacific northwest forest. Join me, let’s take our cocktails to the forest!”
