Scarlet is a freelance journalist and business consultant currently living in San Francisco with her husband and Taste Tequila partner, Grover. She discovered the pleasure of drinking tequila while living in Mexico City and has been enjoying and evangelizing the merits of agave ever since.
Grover, a photojournalist and Internet entrepreneur, discovered tequila relatively late in life but has been making up for it ever since. He is co-founder of PhotoShelter and SportsShooter.com, and has worked in management roles for several large-scale Internet companies including Quokka Sports (NBCOlympics.com, FinalFour.net), and the Chicago Tribune.
Scarlet and Grover lived in Mexico for 2 years so they could study tequila, the tequila industry, and how tequila is made and evaluated. When they returned to the United States they took what they learned and created the Tequila Matchmaker mobile app.
