What you can offer as a writer/beer lover?

I possess a distinctive expertise in various beverage categories, cultivated through a combination of formal education and dedicated self-study. My knowledge is complemented by extensive experience in diverse sectors of the drinks industry. Over the years, I have contributed to the field in roles such as a sommelier in hospitality, educator, and market researcher. Additionally, I serve as a judge in renowned international competitions, including the International Beer Challenge, the World Whiskies Awards, and the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles.

This multifaceted background uniquely equips me as both a journalist and consultant. In my role as a journalist, I can provide editors with distinctive perspectives on trends and stories. As a consultant, I bring an innovative, out-of-the-box mindset to my clients, grounded in extensive understanding of the wider British drinks market.
