I am the editor of three channels here at DivineCaroline:&nbsp;Body and Soul, Home and Food, and Neighborhood and World. While these might seem like disparate topic areas, I believe that sustainability, health, and food are all inextricalby linked. I have a degree in biochemistry and a master's in public health; sometimes I actually put them to use. Besides being a semi-productive member of society, I am also proud of the fact I have completed a half-ironman, trekked the Annapurnas, bottled wine, and seen Jerry Garcia in concert more times than any developing mind should be allowed. I am known for making deliciously strong cocktails and being irreverant. Shameless promotional plug: my family owns Tulocay Winery, which makes damn fine Pinots, Zins, and Cabs. If you are visiting Napa Valley, our winery is not to be missed. Follow me at <a href="http://twitter.com/bcheesey">twitter.com/bcheesey</a>.<br />
