Bar that I work at: Rockbar NYC

How long I’ve worked there: 8 Years

What are my shifts: Thursdays, Fridays & Sundays

What makes this bar great: Rockbar would be my favorite bar, even if I didn’t work here! It is a very welcoming and fun-filled venue that offers a little something for everybody: from cruisey Bear events, to playful trivia and gaymer events, dance parties, drag shows, live bands and incredibly talented live performers, community benefits and fundraisers….  you could walk in on any given night for a surprisingly different but incredibly enjoyable experience!  Plus, you absolutely get the biggest bang for your buck here!

Best drink I make: Strong ones!

I love it when customers: are genuinely having a great time, and knowing I had a hand in making that happen!

I hate it when customers: Don’t tip

Craziest thing I’ve seen here: What happens at Rockbar stays at Rockbar! Lets just say black light parties are out of the question. haha!

Other places I’ve worked: I used to work for a puppet company as a puppeteer/salesman. I got to play with puppets all day, and they would fly off my hands in sales! Little did they realize, I did not come with the toy. It was a fun gig.

Stuff I do when I’m not bartending: I am also a graphic designer. Besides designing most of Rockbar’s ads, I also design for Furball, The Urban Bear, Shane Tate Presents, Royal Advisor Records and more!

Single or Taken: My partner, Tito and I have been together for 9 years!

Who/what turns me on: Wit, charm, a good laugh, a well groomed beard and there is so much to be said for kindness!

Favorite music: I will always love 90’s rock

Favorite movie or TV show: I adore This is Us. I also have a weakness for procedural crime dramas.

Favorite drag queen: Pissi Myles!

My drag name would be: Red Velvet Cubcake
