What is your role at Bread & Butter Concepts? Day Bartender aka “Crush-tender” at Gram & Dun
How long have you been with us? 2 years in October!
Favorite part of your job? Making people laugh
Drink of choice? I’m currently working on creating an earthy, savory cocktail- something with mushrooms. Everyone seems to love mushrooms. I can’t stand the texture, but they have a solid earthiness. So I want to see if I can bring that out in a cocktail.
Flavors you currently have a crush on? I’m really digging the amaro scene right now.
Describe yourself in 6 words or less. I am a Star Wars fan.

Where did you work prior to Bread & Butter Concepts? You’ve seen me slinging drinks at Kona Grill and La Bodega on Soouthwest Blvd.
What’s your favorite Kansas City activity to do? I love taking my pitbull/sharpei puppy to the outdoor sculpture part at the Nelson. She’s quite sophisticated.
