    Role & Tasks:

    Service bartending. 80-140 covers, sometimes by myself. 6 seat bar to tend to as well. Cocktail creation, lots of prep, as we juice everything and prepare our syrups, cola, tonic, and bloody mary mix in house. Overall, a great experience. Learning everyday from CJ Nielsen. I am beginning to covet something different however.

    Role & Tasks:

    Server and occasional kitchen expo, bartender in an intimate 46 seat french bistro. The size of the restaurant allowed servers to have their own individual sections and offer a more personalized service to guests. Great wine list and cocktail program created by Christopher Brian, now at Coquette, and formerly of Ace Hotel.

    BA English Degree • GPA: 3.1

    Summary

    Non traditional, first generation Hispanic student working slowly towards his degree. I learned the hard way that full-time work and full-time school enrollment is unsustainable. Hoping that if I keep raising my GPA, I won't be unemployable if I decide to pursue another career outside of the service industry.
