Q. What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
A. I attended bartender/mixology school at the Bartender Academy of New York in Farmingdale. I was hired as a head bartender at Venetian Yacht Club formally John Anthony's on the Water in Babylon, NY.
After server all years of experience in the Bartending industry I decided to create my own private Bartending service so I could serve people in their homes. I enjoy the personalized relationships I now have with my clients and most of my jobs are repeat business and referrals from all my satisfied customers.
I am TiPs certified which is a bartender safety/server responsibility certification recognized by New York State and required in many industry bartending jobs.
Q. What types of customers have you worked with?
A. I have been bartending private cocktail parties at clients residence for 7 years. Parties range from weddings, anniversaries, graduations, birthdays, holiday parties, any occasion. I bring my bartending skills and mixing tools to serve professionally presented alcoholic beverages. Setup and breakdown upon request. I provide phone consultations to make sure the client has the proper supplies needed for a successful event. I always dress appropriately and can wear a tuxedo/bow tie when requested.
Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
A. Don't go with the lowest bidder unless you hire a professional after speaking with them. Everyone thinks they can bartend, but working a party requires experience, communication skills,and flexibility to meet the needs of the client. Having a stranger working in your home during an important engagement requires trust on both ends. Providing in home services for seven years has given me the confidence I need to perform the job that will make the client happy.
