Hailing originally from Edinburgh, Scotland, after university in London, England, Jamie began working as Sommelier at his hometown's acclaimed Atrium restaurant, whilst at the same time studying with the Wine and Spirits Education Trust. Moving to his adopted home of Toronto, Canada in 1997, Jamie has worked as the Wine Director for both Toronto’s prestigious Granite Club and later for Chef Jamie Kennedy’s numerous restaurants, most notably the much-missed Jamie Kennedy Wine Bar. After the closure of the Jamie Kennedy Wine Bar, and some fifteen years working as a Sommelier, Jamie wished to stay in the world of wine, but longed to embrace his other passion… his passion for writing. In 2010 Jamie and co-founder Malcolm Jolley established Good Food Media, a non-profit dedicated to educating people about good food and wine through the weekly online publication Good Food Revolution. Good Food Revolution recently celebrated its sixth year.
