Washington D.C. native, Virginia Commonwealth graduate, and head bar-maven/jack-of-all-trades at Old Town's own deliciously unique Charlene's Kitchen .
Being in the industry for over five years, I have been a part of D.C.'s ever-evolving scene in bars from Uptown, Capitol Hill, Georgetown, to Dupont Circle.
Working with one of the best and most innovative culinary artists (THE Charlene of Charlene's Kitchen) has inspired my approach to not only how I create cocktails, but how I design each bar, craft mixers, and provide an overall experience that includes a beverage that's not only fresh & tasty, but a sight to behold.
As a student of life and slight nerd at heart, I have a passion for understanding the distilling process and knowing the ins-and-outs of all spirits - all of its similarities, differences, and overall history.
Long-term goal: To own and operate my own liquor emporium & speakeasy.
