Where are you from?

San Diego, CA

 

What first inspired you to be creative? What inspires you to be creative today?

My mom was always a driving force in my creativity. My earliest memories are of us drawing together. Now, in adulthood, my drive in cocktail creation comes from the guests and visitors I meet. It’s so meaningful to create not only an experience, but a special drink someone has never had before. It’s an absolute rush.

 

Why and how do you utilize the materials you incorporate into your artwork?

Sustainability is a huge one for me. I feel it’s important to use what can naturally and locally be found in abundance. I do a lot of hiking and I love incorporating San Diego’s resources into my creations.

 

How has your artwork changed over time?

As I advance my cocktails become more simplistic. This means not adding all the unneeded ingredients and really focusing the highlights on the spirits and the focal flavors I curate.

 

What is one thing you cannot live without?

Well its not a thing, its a person. My wife (cheesy I know) but she always supports me and pushes me to be the best I can be. She keeps me focused and creative art the same time. At times I think I cant do it without her.

 

What makes you feel connected to Surf City Still Works?

Being from San Diego, and loving to work locally, it’s amazing to use a product that is both creative and delicious.
