I am a co-founder and contributing member of Developing Palates. I began smoking cigars in 2011 and I have been hooked ever since. I like to smoke all types of cigars as I am always on the lookout for finding great flavors. I have served on the Board of Directors for the Cigar Media Association (CMA) and was a founding member and co-owner of the cigar review site Blind Man’s Puff.
Beyond cigars, I am a baseball fanatic, love to play softball, into craft beers and spirits and enjoying time with my wife and young daughter.
I am a reviewer for Developing palates, joining the team in 2017. My passion for cigars began in 2007 but I have been smoking cigars since 2003. For nearly five years I was writing for myself on Seth’s Humidor, but since then have contributed to other sites, shows and podcasts as well. I am one who focuses on the flavors in a cigar and believe that strength and body should be after thoughts to that. I look for balance, complexity and depth and it is in those three areas you will have a great cigar. Outside of cigars I love spending time with my wife and kids, and I’m a fiend for mojitos.
