Kelly Originally from the Bay Area and now an avid lover of the San Diego area for the last 5 years, I am in love with the never ending beer options San Diego has to offer! I am never without craft beer in my fridge and never turn down the chance to try something new. Not only am I an avid beer lover, I am also a photographer for 10+ years, an alum from San Diego State University-Integrated Marketing Communications, and a lover of travel with 41 states and 15 countries under my belt. Rarely seen without a smile on my face, you will find me at beer events, tasting rooms, all kinds of restaurants and of course by the beach with a beer in hand either reading a book or throwing a frisbee with friends.
