I've been speaking to audiences for 30-plus years. From beer conventions to marketing events for Dow Jones/Wall Street Journal. From the Emily Dickinson Museum to the National Business Incubators Association to --- career high! —- the Smithsonian Institute (not once, but twice!).

I'm yours for the asking. And money. (Skill and expertise, of which I have plenty, don't come cheap.)



Four books. A variety of opinion pieces, including for the Los Angeles Times and the Washington Post. For a detailed list and links, see the Books/Projects page.

Ask away, people, ask away. Money not always involved.



Yes, I've been in front of a camera. For quick examples of live, unscripted TV, see here and here. (These clips stemmed from the sale of Anheuser-Busch to InBev, during which Fox Business News asked me to serve as an "expert.") (Which I was.)

I also appeared in the feature film Beer Wars (Ducks In A Row Entertainment) and:

  • Eat: The Story of Food ("Baked and Buzzed" and "Carnivores") / National Geographic Channel

  • Key West: Bohemia In the Tropics / Knockemdown Productions

  • The American Brew / Florentine Films

  • American Originals: Budweiser / CNBC

  • Ultimate Factories: Budweiser / National Geographic Channel

  • Modern Marvels: Plumbing / History Channel
