Originally from Washington, DC, I have been in hospitality for 18 years. I worked at many great bars in Boston, including the inovative cocktail bar Backbar in Somerville, MA operated by award winning bartender Sam Treadway. I also worked in Washington DC for Derek Brown who operates The  Columbia Room, voted bst cocktail bar in the country at Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans last year. I have created cocktail programs with cocktails on tap, including a Nitro Tap Margarita at Casa Verde Bar and an Aperol Spritz at Pastoral Restaurant and many other Beverage programs in Boston working for chefs such as Frank McClellan, Todd English, and Andy Husbands.

I am currently representing Stolen Spirits as a brand ambassador in the Boston market, expanding to New York and DC (www.thisisstolen.com) I can also be found behind a few bars in Boston as a hired gun!

Finally, I am the lead singer in the Boston based Prince tribute band LoVeSeXy (lovesexyband.com).
