Meet the Staff

Ted Rice

In 1995, Ted Rice decided to turn his love for good food and beverage into a career. After visiting several breweries and receiving a home brew kit from his brother, Ted went to his local brewpub and landed a job washing kegs and assisting the brewers. In 1998, Ted completed the American Brewer’s Guild Intensive Brewing Science and Engineering course. Since then, Ted has run several successful breweries and has won multiple GABF and World Beer cup medals along with numerous local accolades.

Jason Fitzpatrick

Jason Fitzpatrick - Head Shot (1)

In 2003, Jason earned his degree in Political Science from the University of Notre Dame. Preferring to solve the World’s problems over a pint rather than in a courtroom, he shifted his career focus to the craft beer industry- working in London, Oxford, Scottsdale, Los Angeles, and Santa Fe, before settling in with Marble in Albuquerque.


Sales and Distribution

Dan Mundschau

Dan came to work for Marble as a delivery driver in April of 2009. As the only driver for the Albuquerque area, he handled all of the deliveries and doubled as the draft technician. With the enormous popularity of Marble Beer, and as wholesale demand grew, it became obvious that one driver and truck weren’t enough. More drivers, trucks and wholesale accounts created the need for someone to manage it all, and the Distribution Manager position was developed. Dan was the obvious choice for the job, and he now runs Marble Distributing, which enjoys continued growth and success year after year.


Brewhouse

Josh Trujillo

New Mexico native Josh was raised in the north valley were he still resides. A jack of all trades with a welding/construction background, Josh can fix just about anything. He enjoys fishing, camping, hunting, mountain biking, operas, moshpits and brewing beer. In 2008, Josh landed at Marble Brewery working as a bar back and helping the pub cleaning crew. He quickly worked his way up through almost every position. Josh gained his brewing chops here at Marble and graduated from the American Brewers Guild in 2011. In the summer of 2012, Josh became Marble’s head brewer.

Kyle Rudeen

An Albuquerque native landed a gig building boxes with a few friends whilst doing what they did best in college: enjoying a craft brew or two. Kyle split his time between Marble and college until he graduated. Unpleased with his degree, he pursued brewing, learning the ropes around the brewery from the bottom-up. Having only a couple of home brews with his dad under his belt, brewing wasn’t exactly an aspiring passion of his; instead, his interest was sparked by the learning experience and hands-on application of science, engineering and creative thinking.

Anna Kornke

With humble beginnings rooted in a bus/house combination in Silver City, NM,
you could say Anna has come a long way. She graduated from UNM in 2009 with
a B.S. in Medical Laboratory Science and immediately secured a lab position
at The Heart Hospital. After over a year at the lab bench, having mastered
the intricacies of every human fluid, she sought a more challenging and
complex arena. Enter Marble Brewery and the art of crafting beer. Part
science, part dark magic, Anna has fallen in love with the process of
brewing and the community that surrounds it. She enjoys being surrounded by
people with fun-loving attitudes and a commitment to creating a quality
product. As a native New Mexican, she is proud to be part of the craft beer
scene here. When not wrangling yeast, Anna enjoys spending time outside rock
climbing, camping, snowboarding and road-tripping.

Nathan Jackson

Nathan grew up with a passion for learning about how things work. He took apart electronics as a kid and learned to put them back together, though not always successfully. Thankfully, he’s gotten better, and it’s not surprising that he is now in charge of all things packaging for Marble Brewery. So, the next time you drink a bottle or can of Marble beer, know that there was probably a lot of taking things apart and putting them back together to get you that perfectly packaged beer.
