For many years, I was juggling my intense passion for Sweden, where I once lived, wine, jazz and a good joke alongside day jobs in the financial sector, research & marketing. A few years years ago I left the hustle and bustle of Moscow, Russia, for the serenity and beauty of Napa Valley. So now I spend my time between exploring the wines of California and the world, writing, listening to jazz, and hunting for mid-century treasures in Sweden and California. And there’s always time for a good joke!
