What is your favorite shot to make? To drink?
Favorite to make:  Mexican Candy—Watermelon Pucker, Tequila, and hot sauce.
Favorite to drink:  Jameson’s with a pickle back.

Where is your favorite place to drink when not on duty?
I don’t usually go out!  But I would say Crocker Bar.

What is a current bar drink trend you’d like to see end?
I’m cool with all drinks. Some of them I’ve never heard of, but I am interested in making them for the first time.

What are you best known for?
Being down-to-earth and easy-going.

What is the best and worst holiday to work?
Best holiday to work is Labor Day, and the worst is Christmas.

Biggest tip from one customer?
$300

Who are the hardest customers to please?
None—you just need to know there are so many different personalities, and treat everyone with respect.

If you weren’t a bartender, what career would you choose?
Well, I work as an interior designer during the day. But I wouldn’t mind being a professional male dancer, if you know what I mean.

Do you have any pets?
Yes, I have two rescue dogs, Milo and Frida.

What is the best part about working at Neon Boots?
I love the owners—Debbie, Jim, Fernando, Rodney, and Ron are the best in Houston, indeed!
