Freelance Writer and Editor

Me, Myself, and I

My mother got me into literature and writing at a very young age. The Hobbit was my first real book, and from it, my love of both began to explode. I've written for a variety of industries over the last few years including copy for major corporations as well as editing for memoirs and professional documents. I undermine my ability and always attempt to better myself, but I've heard high praise for my compositions from previous clients. I'm confident in my ability to perform well in any project that calls for a smith of words.

Barista/Assistant Manager

9th Bar Espresso

General pursuer of great coffee, I bring the dead back to life and inspire moments of happiness in each of my customers

I pride myself on making some of the best coffee one can drink. Even though I know I'm no coffee god, I'm alright with that because still  I'm confident I can serve you a better cup than Starbucks; and that's good enough for me.

As we reach our third year, I've helped the cafe and brand grow into the business it is today. We consistently offer our customers a unique craft-coffee experience that exceeds expectations. Hosting competitions and adding new creations to the menu on a seasonal basis, we strive for better than perfection, and deliver such. 

I've developed our tea program from scratch, as well as been the liaison of "good coffees" (a joke with truth from our sign) and the roasters to create them. I maintain those relationships with our 10 rotating roasters on a yearly basis. I also manage all of our in-house finances involving orders and supplies. I also personally have held down over 3000 hours behind our bar.

Barista/Shift Supervisor

Starbucks Corporation

I operated on a managerial level to oversee day-to-day operations as well as service customers on a personal basis through a vast array of beverages and retail-wares. I oversaw staffs of at least ten to fifteen people and lead partners with big (and small) personalities ranging from twenty to sixty years of age. I kept up with various health code standards within the company as well as educated myself and my crew on new policy and standards as they came to standard.

I've learned a vast array of things involving the retail and business world through this job. I also served as a training associate in my later months as well as Jean Expert. It was here I first garnered a taste for fashion and style.

Plumber's Assistant

Clifford Brudno CO.|

Construction-Residential & Commercial/Office Assisted Master Plumber with Various Tasks.

This is that one job everyone might've had with a family member. I worked for my dad since I was a baby (literally, he used to bring me to job sites in a carrier), and I've learned so much during my career with him; I did everything from manual labor to technical construction of complicated plumbing machinery and systems. He taught me work ethics, money management, and how to care for customers on a case-by-case basis. I also learned how to deal with a variety of social encounters through him, enabling me to better serve the client (awkward stories and all).
