I enjoy being able to help educate people in the craft that is coffee. From learning about seed to cup and the whole process in between. I also enjoy being able to do something I am passionate about each day.

My aspiration for the future is to eventually take all the knowledge I have gained from the different places I have worked at and open up my own coffee shop.
