  • Duke has worked in the food and beverage industry for more than 10 years in Boston and LA.
  • He wrote a cocktail column for BostonChefs.com and was the General Manager of award-winning LA wine shop and bar Stanley's Wet Goods.
  • Over the course of his writing career, he's always kept at least one foot in the food and beverage world, working for the James Beard-winning Barbara Lynch Gruppo and the Best Restaurant in Boston winner SRV before moving to Los Angeles.


Duke started his career editing a monthly newspaper in Boston while moonlighting at a wine bar. He quickly realized that his passion for food and wine could complement his written work, and he began working for BostonChefs.com as an editorial assistant and cocktail columnist. Over the next 10 years he held various writing jobs as a pop culture freelancer, ad copywriter, and biographer. He now lives in Los Angeles, where he continues to explore the food and beverage scene in one of the greatest dining cities in the world.
