Event Coordinator and Bartender

What do you most love about Chattanooga?

I love the immense amount of local art and music. Pre-covid, there wasn’t a day that went by when you didn’t have a local art show or concert to go to.

What is your favorite thing to do in your down time?

I really love going to the local breweries. Chattanooga is fortunate to have a brewery market that’s established and growing. Each brewery has something to offer, from sours to seasonal ales, and I really love exploring that.

What Chattanooga experience do you rave about to locals and visitors?

I don’t think you can really say you’ve gotten the “local” Chattanooga experience until you’ve experienced a show at JJ’s Bohemia and had a proper patty melt and Ice Pick afterward at Pickle Barrel.

Favorite drink to make?

I really love beer. I think there’s a beer for everyone, and I really enjoy helping people find the style they enjoy best.
