“I loved growing up here. My mother, Barbara, was just the perfect mom. She gave me unconditional love and supported anything I did. I grew up liking hair, so the first thing I did after high school was to get my cosmetology license. That was my artistic passion. I still have family here. It’s a very grounding feeling for me to be here.”

The professional term is Master Culinary Mixologist. I like to say I’m preaching and teaching the gospel of fine-crafted cocktails, using seasonally fresh, locally sourced items. The less pretentious term I also like to use is “Traveling Elixir Fixer.”
Just like any typical catalyst increases the rate of a chemical reaction, the Catalyst Elixir offers an interesting twist on a cocktail as it allows a base mixture to adapt to component mixes to change with seasons or occasions. After creating the base, it may be mixed with ginger ale, club soda or other clear sodas with a few seasonal berries (blueberry is sensational in this drink!) for a spring or summer highball, sparkling white wine for a twist on a brunch mimosa or celebratory occasions.
