I used to scoff at the idea of celebrating holidays far removed from the time of year - like Xmas in July. That was pre-Covid, and I've got no room to scoff anymore since one day, someday we will all be celebrating makeup birthdays and maybe even some holidays in the summer, or whenever life can resume again.

Are bartenders role models?

Not sure that I am, only that I keep good company. Every member of the Los Angeles cocktail community plays a part in their bar and the greater community. In the past 9.5 years at my bar I hope I've played my role as a listener, supporter, and creative for my bar team and our patrons.

As a photographer who came up within the community, I hope I have captured the moments and have played my part as a keeper of memories for those who have taken this journey in the last decade.

More like a community role player (not model) as someone who was there - to prove it was a great time that we had.
