  • As the wife of a craft brewer, Kirstie has experience in a wide range of alcoholic beverages, including beer, beer making, cocktails and mixology, wine, and wine tasting.
  • Having lived on all four corners of the United States, as well as in Europe, Kirstie is well traveled and has experienced food from a wide variety of cultures, regionalities, and cuisine styles, and she loves to experiment with trying new foods -- though she draws the line at eating something still moving.
  • As a writer, Kirstie has written on a wide variety of topics and subjects, in articles, newsletters, blogs, corporate communications, and many other venues.

Experience

Kirstie has been a writer for all of her life, really, but it was only in the last few years that she's transitioned to writing about something she actually really loves: food and beverages. She's not only written articles on Gearmoose and FoodieTravelUSA , but she's also done social media for a brew house in Pennsylvania and a winery in British Columbia. Her personal knowledge of food, wine, cocktails and beer is now meshing with her love of writing, which had primarily before that been mostly corporate-related writing and personal fiction stories. She's lived in some of the biggest cities in the world -- New York, LA, Seattle -- and whenever she and her husband travel they seek out the best food destinations in whatever area they're going to, everything from celebrity chefs' restaurants to local food trucks.

Education

She has a degree in communications with a focus in advertising from the University of Washington. That included journalism, communications law and other related courses. But what makes her qualified is the education she's gotten outside of her degree, the food experiences and knowledge she's gained over the years.
