Anna (rhymes with Donna) hails from the remote and rainy mountains of Southern Oregon, where her father made his first attempts to teach her how to taste wine while frog fishing in an algae ridden pond nestled in the middle of a local vineyard. In college (SOU, Ashland), she studied a little philosophy and a lot of science, and she began her steady and ambitious trajectory toward a career as an artist- no, a veterenarian- no actually a doctor- nevermind, a biomedical researcher. Until she took a chemistry of wine class, and in a blinding flash, her true destiny became clear. In her free time, she draws stuff and likes to think she can play the banjo. Anna enjoys most forms of alcohol, people watching, and clouds.
