David Hale brings a wide variety of experiences to his recently launched Gemini Wine Company
. Even as he introduces himself in this episode of Defining Creativity
, it is evident that his background in musical theatre, opera, directing children's theatre, work alongside award-winning chef Michel Richard, and twenty-five years in the restaurant and wine industry all influence his approach to his business and life in general—though he ultimately chose to have the title of the episode designate him as a sommelier, because as he states:
"I identify with the spirit of what it means to take care of somebody— and that's just what I try to do; try to do it with love; try to do it with energy and passion behind it."
