Head of Cocktails & Spirit Development, OBM
Nickname: It depends on who you ask…since coming to the U.S., I’ve acquired the nickname ‘London.’
Location: New York, Los Angeles and Brighton…all good times!
Book: Food: The History of Taste.
Movie: The Avengers – Marvel films… I’m a sucker for them.
New York Restaurant : DBGB and La Esquina
New York Bar : Dead Rabbit
Candy: Rum or tequila (not technically candy, I know, but I see a new Duck & Waffle cocktail coming!)
SUSHISAMBA Dish: As I’m answering this questionnaire, I’m eating a Hamapeño roll at SUSHISAMBA Miami Beach and I love it!
Place we’ll find you most often (aside from OBM): When time off is allowed, I enjoy absorbing everything in terms of new cocktail bars, new ideas and different ideas. I wholeheartedly love creating so everyday for me is an opportunity to find inspiration.
Outfit we’ll most likely see you in: Suit at work and jeans on the street
Something we may not know about you: I’ve only been bartending for five years. I’ve been in the industry for longer, but only behind the bar within the past few years…
Personal Quote: “Dream as if you’d live forever, live as if you’d die tomorrow.”
How long have you been working at OBM: I’ve been with the team since April 2012
Three words that best define you: Different, creative, difficult
Your idea of perfect happiness: Having my own place, either a restaurant or bar, but being able to walk away on days off and enjoy family time with my girls.
