TOBIN SHARP - CREATIVE DIRECTOR, HI TIME WINE CELLARS
Tobin started at Hi-Time in the fall of 1995 in the Smoke Shack. He clawed his way upward, eventually naming himself Creative Director, overseeing much of the marketing and advertising for the company. He is equally fond of and reasonably knowledgable with wine, spirits, beers and cigars, having spent the last 20+ years taste-testing quite a multitude of them in a variety of scenarios and establishments. Dashingly handsome, impeccably witty and with quite a singing voice to go along with his everyman "aw, shucks" modesty, Mr. Sharp also oversaw many of the biographies written for this website.
Tobin's formal education is in English, with a B.A. in that area and an M.F.A. in Creative Writing, both from Chapman University. In his younger days he spent 11 summers working at Camp Emerald Bay, a Boy Scout camp on Santa Catalina Island, the last four summers as Camp Director.
