As a 2nd generation coffee trader, I have been working in the specialty green coffee industry for over twenty five years, having built and grown specialty trading teams and supply chains at major international trading houses. I provide in depth insights and consulting services for both the origin and the specialty roaster and offer innovative approaches to sourcing, quality, sustainability, marketing and risk management.

Growing up around sample roasters and cupping rooms instilled a love for good coffee and the community that comes with it. Its no surprise I am the 3rd generation of my family in the coffee business. Professionally I started as a barista and roasting assistant at local craft coffee roasters where I developed a passion for building relationships. I take pride in perfecting brewing methods, latte art and developing my cupping skills to support and contribute to the industry I've learned to love.
