Phoenix, AZ

I love to draw and paint, I'm a cyclist, golfer, and a big Optimus Prime fan! I also enjoy cooking and spending time outdoors.

MEET THE ARTIST

As an artist, I've always had a passion to create something special that I can share with others. I use ingredients like fruits, veggies, herbs and spices, and bring them together to create a balanced cocktail which interacts with all of your taste buds.

FAVORITE BAR INGREDIENT

The mix I chose to help develop is the Manhattan because it has a delicate balance of rich flavor, sweetness and bitterness. It’s a timeless cocktail that tastes better with each sip.
