Sin with Zin

Doug Beckett’s roots can be traced to Morgantown, West Virginia, where he was born into a Navy family and traveled most of his early years.  He settled in San Diego, where he met and married Nancy Thibodo in 1971. That same year, Doug graduated from college with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration. He subsequently earned his Master’s degree in Psychology in 1975 and, also holds a lifetime teaching credential. Between 1970 and 1979 Doug taught multi-levels of school, ranging from Kindergarten to University and ended his teaching career as a high school counselor.  Prior to leaving education, he became involved as a full partner in a small chain of convenience stores, which lasted until 1981. At that time, Doug and Nancy moved their two sons, Josh and Jake, to Paso Robles looking for a better life. Doug’s first job in Paso Robles was as a carpenter, which he held for a number of years, working exclusively on barns.  At the same time, he started making wine.  Over the course of 35 years living in Paso Robles, Doug has also developed land, sold real estate, taught school as a resource specialist and started his own import-export company, specializing in art glass from Eastern Europe.  From 1981 until 1987, Doug was also a managing partner in Tobias Winery.
