Author: Chris Grest

Chris Grest is a set dresser/prop master for various film and television productions as well as a screenwriter who hopes to see one of his projects go into production soon. He frequently visits New York and New Orleans to see friends and family and is constantly planning his next trip to somewhere he hasn't yet been. The first thing he does when traveling to a new city is "Google map" the city and then search for the words "microbrewery," "winery," "barbecue,” and "dive bar" (though not necessarily in that order). As a film, football and whiskey enthusiast whose adventures have taken him all over the country and occasionally (though not often enough) abroad, Chris is proud to share that he has "checked off" all sixty-plus wineries in Santa Barbara’s Santa Ynez Valley and both whiskey distilleries in Tennessee. He's tasted wine in at least six states and has visited half of the bourbon distilleries in Kentucky (and is hoping to pad those stats as soon a possible). Raised in New Jersey, Chris graduated from Rutgers University with a degree in Cinema Studies and currently lives in Los Angeles (where the best tamales in the city are within walking distance of his Echo Park apartment).
