Any claims to fame? Suggesting the adopted “Trash Panda” moniker for volunteers of Toronto Cocktail Conference, and my participation in the inaugural year. Hardly any fame to note, but I take further pride in my 2015 Cocktail Apprenticeship at Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans, and equally my involvement in San Antonio Cocktail Conference’s “Team Taco” from 2017-2019, especially upon assuming a leadership role from 2018-2019.
