If you follow the blog regularly, you’ve realized that I haven’t updated this part of the page in years (2014 was the last update, so a few things have changed). I’m still very much a type-A personality, but since we bought a house, we live on the western border of New Jersey, about 3 minutes from Pennsylvania, which puts me even closer to Philadelphia. I spent about 10 years in EMS, but moved on to working in third party logistics. I manage a large warehouse in central New Jersey, which takes up most of my time.
When I’m not at work, I love watching sports. Despite being born in New York City, I love all of the Philly teams, especially the Phillies and the Eagles. I’m a Certified Beer Server as well. If you want to friend me on Untappd, my username is beerproof.
2018 was a rough year for us pet-wise. We had to put our beloved cat, Angel, to sleep. We miss him every day. He was always trying to walk on my computer while I was blogging, and was with me when I started the blog. We still have Citra and Simcoe, who are no longer small orange cats. In December, we rescued a cat from the shelter and his name is Sorachi (we wanted to stick with the hops theme). He’s a very energetic kitten and so snuggly and loving. He is making a great addition to the family. He has determined that our bed is much more comfortable than a cage at the shelter.

Other than beer, I spend a lot of time with my other half, who used to be referred to as the lawyer on the blog, but is now referred to as my wife, since we made it official in February of 2018. She’s right by my side, visiting breweries or bringing home beer hauls from different states. She is always down to find a good brunch place with some craft beer for me. Her preferences are still beers on the fruity side and now she’s into ciders and meads as well.
