My interest in Mixology was ignited while in Las Vegas several years ago, where I received several private training lessons from the Head Mixologist of the Monte Carlo Hotel and Casino. After investing in a home bar, hosting weekly cocktail tastings, and receiving extensive additional training in San Francisco, my passion, knowledge and skills have continued to grow.
My wife and I started facilitating The Art of the Cocktail, Chapters One and Two through Learn from Neighbor at the beginning of 2015. We are currently building our new brand, The Dram Shop, where we will feature how-to videos, blog articles, recipes, and a special community forum for previous Learn from Neighbor participants. After teaching 6 classes together, I am excited to begin facilitating a new series of Mixology classes as a solo project.
As the ‘cocktail renaissance’ grows in popularity, I hope to inspire a passion for the historic art of Mixology in my students.
