My passion is bringing people together for good food & fun experiences. I’ve lived in Sebastopol for 20 years and I've seen it evolve from a sleepy hippie town surrounded by apple orchards into a wonderful wine and culinary destination. I’ve always made it my mission to stay on top of the local food & wine scene, and when I travel, I find that the best way to explore a new place is through it’s food. That’s why Food Crush Tours is such a sweet spot for me – the culmination of a lifetime of eating and exploring. I’m thrilled to share my enthusiasm for our local eateries and artisans with you!
