"Divine Drinks" column, Y.A.M. magazine, 2012–2016
Victoria, BC, lifestyle magazine, Y.A.M., hired me to write a drinks column six times year. For five years I wrote columns primarily focused on locally produced spirits, wine and craft beer. Though the editor asked for a list of potential topics at the beginning of each publishing year, I was free to approach the content as I saw fit. I frequently interviewed local mixologists and drinks makers, and was able to include their recipes, as well as some of my own creations.
