Editor’s Note: As you know, Brooks and I were amongst many bloggers invited down to Drew Estate a few weeks ago. Both Brooks and I brought our cameras, he used his (fortunately) and I didn’t, again, fortunately. On a personal note, there are very  few halfwheel posts I actually have anticipation towards seeing, this is one of them.

I am an editor and co-founder of halfwheel.com/Rueda Media, LLC. I previously co-founded and published TheCigarFeed, one of the two predecessors of halfwheel. I have written about the cigar industry for more than a decade, covering everything from product launches to regulation to M&A. In addition, I handle a lot of the behind-the-scenes stuff here at halfwheel. I enjoy playing tennis, watching boxing, falling asleep to the Le Mans 24, wearing sweatshirts year-round and eating gyros. echte liebe.
