Nick Korn is a life-long student and self-identified nerd; with a background in anthropology, and an addiction to travel, he brings an academic lens to eating and drinking the world over. A dedicated professional in the bar industry in Boston for over a decade, he has pursued study—both in the classroom and in the field—into the ways that food and beverage tie into larger themes of human experience. A fierce advocate for his community, Nick currently owns and manages OFFSITE, a boutique trade engagement marketing and strategy firm focused on changing paradigms in the liquor industry. Nick believes that education is the cornerstone of the elevation of this industry. Nick self-identifies as a bartender and isn’t ready to be put out to pasture yet.
