Bartender

Odd Duck Restaurant

Odd Duck opened in Bay View three years ago to rave reviews and the hungry crowds have yet to abate.  It has been my good fortune to bartend there from the beginning.  Our eclectic clientele ranges from neighborhood residents to out-of-towners looking to check up on our outstanding reputation.  My responsibilities include serving our diners all forms of far flung spirits, as well as dinner to those sitting at our busy bar.  I'm also entrusted with securing all cash on hand at the end of the night, setting the security alarm and locking down the premises.

Bartender / Manager-on-Duty

The Irish Pub

The Irish Pub is the corner bar of Milwaukee's vibrant and historic Third Ward.  We entertain all types 365 days a year.  MIAD students, vacationers, employees from surrounding galleries, boutiques, and restaurants all add to the family milieu.  From sleepy weekday afternoons to capacity weekends, I ensure that everyone enjoys the revelry and leaves with a story to tell. I tend bar, oversee all operations in the absence of the GM, and am entrusted with securing all cash on hand at the end of the night, setting the security alarm and locking down the premises.
