Dreamer, loyal, hard working, dawg

Why you joined the craft beer industry:

I initially was all in on Beer Thug Life (now Beer Thug Brewing) to help my father out with his dream. I quickly fell in love with the brewery lifestyle and finally found out what I wanted to do with my life. I started out helping him brew at home, canning at different breweries, and delivering our contract brews to liquor stores all over southern California in a beat up 1990 Ford F-150. (It always broke down)

When you joined the craft beer industry:

I started in 2017 simply recording and editing Beer Thug Life videos. I was still under 21 so I didn’t actively start doing the hands on stuff till 2019.

Pilsner or Lager

Greatest accomplishment(s):

Being a part of the Beer Thug journey from day one.

Professional volunteer / big sister / sleepy

Why you joined the craft beer industry:

The first time I tried a craft beer I was amazed that there was more out there than Corona and Modelo. It was a whole new world for me. Then one of my best friends started working at a brewery. I applied for a job there and got hired, too. It was great to work with my best friend and build a community there. Now I get to pour great beer in the neighborhood where I grew up. It’s the best.

July 2019 in Costa Mesa

Saison! I love tasting how breweries put their own spin on this unique beer type.

My career path has been a long and winding road of unexpected adventures so far. Ask me about it when you see me behind the BeerThug bar!

5 words or less that describe you:

I chug fast as fuck

Why you joined the craft beer industry:

I don't know if it was fate or something else, but I got into this industry accidentally. I spent 12 years in the culinary field, and  helped open the kitchen at the dankness dojo. I was one of the many unfortunate ones that was laid off. By that time, I was already into craft beer and chugging. Well I saw an ad saying that Arts District Brewing was looking for cooks. I applied, but the guy I was supposed to talk to wasn't there. Ended up talking to the bar manager, cracked a joke and got a job behind the bar. Now I am here at BeerThug Brewing.

When you joined the craft beer industry:

My brewery journey began in 2018
 

Favorite type of beer:

A delicious west coast IPA. Nothing beats it.

Greatest accomplishment(s):

My 2 gorgeous daughters.
