I GREW UP IN Winston-Salem, NC.
WHERE I DAYDREAMED OF playing in a rock and roll band and my future wife.
Winston WAS GREAT. Good friends, warm summer nights, and a carefree lifestyle.
I JUST HOPE PEOPLE THERE DON’T REMEMBER WHEN I… um… oh yeah… I don’t remember that either.
SINCE THEN, I’VE DISCOVERED that I have to be a responsible adult, but that doesn’t have to keep me from enjoying life.
FOR ME, “Le bon Dieu est dans le détail.”
I’M REALLY EXCITED TO BE A PART OF MARKET GARDEN BREWERY/SPEAKEASY/ CENTO/BIER MARKT/NANO BREW BECAUSE I get to learn about craft beer, enjoy craft beer with good people, and be a part of amazing things that are happening in the best neighborhood of one of America’s greatest cities… and get paid for it.
WE ALL DO A LITTLE BIT OF EVERYTHING, BUT TO SUM UP MY ROLE, I’D SAY I’M mostly just comedic relief.
WHEN I’M NOT WORKING, I like to ride my bike as much as possible and spend evenings patio sitting with good people and a craft beverage.
MY FAVORITE THING ABOUT CLEVELAND IS the rich and diverse history. I also love the lakefronts, metroparks, neighborhoods, etc. There is a unique sense of community and the people are real, with character… like myself.
IN TWENTY-FIVE YEARS, I hope to be traveling around Europe.
AND THAT WHEN PEOPLE TALK ABOUT MGB, THEY’LL TALK ABOUT some of the best beers that came into and out of Cleveland, and how we contributed to the craft beer movement.
