BARTENDER TRAINER

While in Chicago, a lot of great things happened for me. A lot I made happen, but I also have to believe some other higher power assisted me in seeing my way. 162 tequilas, table side guac, guac is always extra. I trained a good handful of bartenders here, and we saw great success! Money handling, punctuality, anticipation, repetition, reputation, accuracy, and customer service with a smile and a shoulder, 100% of the time. Hand made, premium, authentic. By the way, this is where my wife & I met. Coincidentally, we both lived within a block of one another in a north neighborhood, went to the same school downtown, moved to Chicago the same year, and didn’t meet for almost 3 years living in the city with the biggest shoulders. So, this place is OUR… ¡Familia de Chicago! Rest in Peace Don Tony.

SKILLED TRADES

I was a Tree Doctor. I do carpentry, decks, roughing, roofing, finish, cabinets, & trim. Drywall, demolition, general labor & CDL Licensed. Landscaping & lawn maintenance, cemeteries mind you.  Insulation, electrical, plumbing, masonry, & dock maintenance. Farm hand, sugar shack, harvest hand, custodian, fence mending, can drive a stick, if you are still reading – country boys do it all, always have.

"Art is what I do. With what, for who, where, when, & why, I leave up to you. How, is

Best part is, it’s not magic. Art is how I feel I best communicate more grandiose thoughts, than say basic conversation. Art to me is dedication, perseverance, drive, creativity, imagination, direction, and the want to express. Expression, building the ability, the courage, the confidence, all takes patience & practice. If you have the patience, I feel I can show you how, if you have the want, all you would have to do is put it into practice. I am a remote virtual software & CAD design trainer during the day, every facet of that system is custom. So, being able to communicate across the vast spectrum of understanding, comfort, technical-know-how, and age levels is a quality I pride myself on highly. Despite being a vegetarian, I’d still rather teach you how to fish. Don’t take it from me, see what some of my cohorts have to say. They all happen to B truly great friends as well.
