I pride myself as a knowledgeable bartender. I have worked in a variety of venues, from college bars to being on stage in Atlantic City making my signature cocktails for judges in front of hundreds of guests. My favorite aspect about working in the industry has been educating customers and students about what they are drinking and the story behind how their drinks came to be. I am a member of the Philadelphia USBG and have learned an extraordinary amount through their experts and regular events and tastings. I hope I can be of service to you.
