Find me mixing drinks and training our amazing bar staff at Desert Ridge this winter.  

Favorite drink to make: Bourbon Sazerac 

I’d most like to mix a drink for Larry Fitzgerald.

If I could have one superpower while working, it’d be to be fast like the Flash, but have it look like a dance.   

If I were a flavor, I’d be spicy.

My biggest bartending fail: While cleaning the restaurant for closing, I locked myself out of the building taking out the trash.    

My top drink and food recommendation to guests: An Old Fashioned with a grilled entrée. I enjoy a great dining experience and love to share that passion with others.  

When I’m not working, I enjoy sipping local craft beers or an Old Fashioned.

My favorite place in town for drinks is Arizona Distilling.
