Amber is a Virginia girl turned expat living with her handsome hubby and five-year-old fur baby Gulliver in a quiet town in Yamaguchi, Japan. She earned an associate's degree in liberal arts and a bachelor's in English and has written everything from sketch comedy and screenplays to rhetorical arguments and poetry. She passed her level one sommelier exam in February 2018 through the Court of Master Sommeliers and loves learning about (tasting) new wines from all over the globe. She is the editor-in-chief and founder of Crumb & Splatter where she shares all things food, drink, and travel. When she's not working out or writing, she can be found honing her snowboarding skills in Hiroshima, exploring hiking trails with her pup, or creating wild dishes in the kitchen with her hubs and a great bottle of Châteauneuf-du-Pape within reach.
