What did you study at Harvard?

I received my MBA from Harvard Business School.

Were you involved with any food or wine activities while a student?

I was the Co-President of the Wine & Cuisine Society and we organized about 30 events including tastings with Shafer, Opus One, and Cakebread.  Twice, I helped to organize a tour of Napa during WesTrek.

Do you think that Harvard has prepared you for a career in food and wine or hospitality in general? If so, how?

Yes, it was a good way to make contacts in the industry and help understand the needs of the luxury consumer.  I also enjoyed showing many people the joy and experience of wine while at school.

What work do you do now?

I have worked for the E&J Gallo Winery my entire career, including tours in Asia & Europe.  I am currently Vice President, General Manager Asia/Pacific.
