If you are a barista or shop, are you interested in a barista exchange with another coffee shop/barista?
Tell us more about your coffee shop or barista skills.
I've been working as a Barista for 3 years, on and off. This past fall was the first time I competed (Midwest regionals). I go to school at Washington University in St. Louis, so I work sparingly these days. But I have a home barista setup, so I'm always making coffee. Its possible I'm more passionate about coffee than anything else though.
What cities or countries are you interested in traveling to?
Anywhere that serves a good cup. Heading to Chicago for the summer though, and therefore looking for a job up there in a cool shop.
I'm an art student, majoring in either photography or graphic design. I also play lacrosse for Washington University. I love my bike. I shoot a lot of concerts with my free time (I work for a music magazine in St. Louis, so I get photograph a lot of bands). I guess I'm a pretty down to earth guy, I'm sure we would get along.
