Something funny:
Sometimes I become animated without knowing it until my friend tells me that I’m weird.
What kind of customers do you like?
I like customers who know how to appreciate a good drink and know their limit. Also, those who respect bartending as a profession.
Which part of your job do you enjoy the most?
I enjoy my job the most when I am making drinks. I grew up living alone most of the time and that’s when I learned to cook and put together my own recipes. I find that the process of mixing ingredients to create something new gives me energy and makes me happy.
What do you usually drink when you are not working?
Water because that’s when my palate gets a break from tasting different flavours at work.
