Humans of Cartel
When he's not hustling in the #CartelBakery, he's hanging with his dog and cat, playing the guitar, and even singing a bit. His boss calls him a real gem & an eccentric guy. We call him one of our #HumansOfCartel.

What brought you to Cartel?
I wanted to keep baking and saw the position open and I’ve pretty much just worked at coffee shops for my life and I was like, “hey I like what they are doing and I like coffee”, so yeah. 
How long have you worked with Cartel?
A little over 5 months.

Share a little about your perspective on Cartel's core values, your community, and the coffee industry.
Love the welcoming and loving attitude everyone is super friendly to everyone and that’s refreshing.
What is your favorite thing about your job?
The people are tiiiiiiight and super nice, so that’s great, and I love making those vegan snicker doodles, v nice, v tasty
What are your aspirations for the future?
I mean like honestly haven’t thought about it, I just wanna make sure I have time to do the stuff that I like.
What is your favorite beverage?
Drip coffee.
