Objective

I have 21 years of restaurant and bar experience.   I am very good at high volume, or making small talk with guests.  I am great at reading guests.  I work well under pressure, have lots of experience and references.  I'm always on time, I never call off, and I can not stand around doing nothing.  I am quick with my hands, semi ambidextrous, and can do a small amount of speed flair.
