“I’m on a mission to civilize. I’m on a mission to show my parents and the people of the world that I show up to work and engage in my profession. I don’t just show up to work.

I believe people would respect what we do as service professionals if we all acted like professionals … I intend to be a part of the movement that restores that respect to bartenders.”
