I am a brewery and beer specialist. For more than three years I have led brewery tours and educational showcases for Flying Fish Brewing Co. https://www.flyingfish.com/. In Somerdale, New Jersey, guiding large and small groups through the process of bottling and canning at one of the biggest eco-friendly breweries on the east coast.
In this role I’ve strengthened my commitment to the industry and my expertise in this field through independent initiatives and collaborative experiences. Whether I’m teaching patrons about Flying Fish’s distinct hops and malts or learning more about the company’s innovative business approach, my goal is to add brand value and inspire a love for local brewing. To ensure this I am studying for the first level in the Cicerone Certification Program.
With Flying Fish Tasting Room I also fulfill various marketing and branding objectives, capturing customer experiences, new flavors, and relevant news for our growing social networks. Building our public identity and solidifying our brand voice have been instrumental to expanding our client base, and I’m proud to say I have led the strategy and execution for this digital growth.
As I look to a multidimensional future in this industry I want to create new partnerships and help develop strong brands.
Please let me know if you have any questions, and I look forward to hearing from you!
