"if you are looking for a seasoned professional with style, a bit of charm and personality; who can dress your event up or tone it down as needed--keep reading! If you are looking for a creative and seasoned professional who can craft a specialty drink for your event--keep reading and remember my contact info! I'm relatively new to Thumbtack but not new to the hospitality industry! 20 plus years in the wine country gives me an insight in the wine and beverage industry and wine making that few other bartenders have, including the back story on many of the best wine makers in the region! I got my start in the late 80's with stints at both the renowned John Ash and Equus as well as a number of low key and far more casual eateries and neighborhood bars. Adding to that is my love of the arts, of flyfishing (semi pro in fact!) and fascination with finance; the short version being is that if you want an articulate and engaging bartender with a certain amount of style AND is presentable (handsome even --for an older man lol ), you just found him! Currently I work as a bartender and pick up additional shifts with some of the finest caterers in the Bay Area . It sounds like I am a workaholic but I like to fill in those "empty spaces" between shifts and events. I offer bartending services as well as consulting and planning for your cocktail and beverage needs. ...and I try to do this for about 30% to 50% less than what most caterers or agencies will charge. Yes, you can find someone who will work for less but you will not find someone who pays more attention to detail, who is more professional or more thorough! Prior to all this, I ran my own business as a master builder and furniture maker so I bring an added measure of professionalism and reliability to every event I accept. Bartending and serving in some of the finest restaurants in the North Bay at the time helped get that business started. I enjoy the "people part" of bartending; engaging with guests and clients if or as much as the pace of the event allows (never losing sight of the fact that no one wants to stand in line or wait while a bartender chats...) I also enjoy the challenge of coming up with creative drink combinations based on the mixers and supplies at hand. Not everyone has the luxury of having a full bar at their disposal so a certain amount of improvising is called for--and I enjoy that kind of problem solving. ...and I enjoy seeing the smiles on guests and clients faces."
