I grew up in Western Pennsylvania but left shortly after graduating from Butler High School. While attending UCF for a finance degree I worked a lot of odd jobs but fell in love with wine and food while working for Pebbles in 1989. At that point I was about to graduate but very few banks wanted a Finance student with a 2.5 GPA so I took a temporary job in a local wine shop as a bookkeeper. After two years I took over the business and the rest, as they say, is history. After that store closed (it was already in bad shape) I moved on to Dexter’s for a couple of years then opened TWM in 1995. When not working I love to cook and spend a lot of time working on my yard and in the garden. I love to travel, with my wife Susan and three kids, Andrew, Kate and Olivia, on long car trips across the south.
