Sazerac Bar
Greater New Orleans Area
Growing up in New Orleans, inspired by the city’s great culinary traditions, I began my career in the kitchen but realized I wanted to be behind the bar. Success in competitions, including winning State of the Art 2014, and the satisfaction I get in serving well-crafted, creative cocktails to an appreciative audience, have affirmed my decision. After experience at some of New Orleans’ best cocktail bars, including SoBou and Bellocq, I am now proud to be part of the city’s great cocktail tradition, working at the historic Sazerac Bar in the Roosevelt Hotel.
