Bio-on yourself/company: I’m 26 and originally from Orange County, California, but moved to Arizona on a dime to get a better lifestyle. I went into my first craft cocktail bar on my 21st birthday, fell in love with watching them work. The guy who served me my first cocktail ended up becoming my best friend, mentor, and a father figure to me. His name was Bobby Kramer who unfortunately passed away 2 years ago from a wrong way driver at 31, he made such an impact on the community that I wanted to be just like him. Long story short he eventually offered me a job to open one his bars. The next 2 years i had won 9 bar competitions, made it to 3 national competitions and placed top 30 in the united states last year. After Bobby’s tragic accident, i had gone into his shoes to run the bar programs at The Brickyard. I am now the beverage director for Trevor’s Liquor. Bartending helps me get out of a bad mental state and has become a lifelong passion. I’ve used to it give back to the community in any way i can. I’ve raised thousands of dollars for charities (Wounded Warriors, Armer Foundation for Kids, Breast Cancer Awareness) as well as money for Bobby’s family after his accident. I love mentoring younger individuals that are very passionate in this industry as well as help people expand their knowledge in this craft industry as well as spreading mental health awareness.

As the area’s first liquor store to combine beer&wine bar, they knew they had to offer a unique experience. At Trevor’s on McDowell enjoy daily food trucks and a pet friendly atmosphere.
