* * *
I have been a home brewer for 15+ years, started making a gallon size batch and have moved up over the years to all grain brewing learning as I go. I have been involved in many non-profit organizations as a leader/mentor I feel that I can provide organizational and process ideas to the committee.
Being a home brewer for so many years and all self-taught I would provide an insight of the pit falls of the first timer brewer up to the more advanced brewer. The lessons learned from being self-taught are invaluable and I feel that being a self-taught brewer I will more willing to get out of the box and try more creative additions into the brewing process.
Professional I have led and been involved in many multi-faceted projects that brought may diverse backgrounds into the process, thus I feel I can provide some insight on building census and strategic planning to the committee.
