My Story: The Fresh Prince of Bel Air Version.

In the average week I can’t even count the number of times I get asked where I’m from, how I came to end up in this country, how I met my wife, and how I got into wine. I therefore did what any rational person would do, and set my life story to the beat of the Fresh Prince of Bel Air. Now I can just direct them to this post and all will become clear!
Play the video and sing along!

Now this is the story all about how.
The wine world got flipped, turned upside down.
And I’d like to take a minute, just sit right there.
I’ll tell you how I became an expert of wine and live here.

In was Brighouse, England, born and raised.
It’s a small town, where I spent most of my days.
Chillin’ out, hustlin’, not very cool.
Selling chewing gum for 10 pence inside of the school.

Lots of dreams in my head, they were up to no good.
Started working restaurants in my neighborhood.
I got into Leeds University, and my dream became clear.
I said “I’m moving to Orlando, I heard it’s warm there!”

I interned at Planet Hollywood and a girl came near.
Her name was Denise, she was cute to be fair.
If anything I could say that this chick was rare.
Got married in ’04, became a Somm from there!

Moved to the States around ’04 or ’05.
Stared wine blogging, trying to keep my dream alive.
As I looked at my kingdom, I was finally here.
To sit on my throne, in the wine blogosphere!
