How many years have you been in the industry?
If you are a barista or shop, are you interested in a barista exchange with another coffee shop/barista?
Born and raised in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia. I’m fortunate to be raised in our wonderful industry. My father started a coffee company in 1973 when coffee wasn’t coffee as we know it today. He did very well over the years focusing on quality and service. My brother and I have been working with him since we were little punks. I’m completely in love with coffee and everything that goes along with it. I’m a passionate student and teacher of our trade. I’m an advocate of revolution to the way coffee is approached! From seed to cup! I praise those who battle the norm on a daily basis, re inventing our industry.
That sounded like my religion is coffee.
I also play competitive rugby for the oldest and most successful rugby club in North America, James Bay Athletic Association est.1886.
I like all water sports from bare footing to wake boarding. I was a competitive water ski jumper at the age of 15.
I love golf (not sure if its mutual).
I have an amazing girlfriend.
I ride loud fast bikes.
I’m an advocate for sustainability and accountability.
Love the environment
Oh yeah tea kicks ass too.
