In 2013, I got my Associates of Art for Graphic Design at Palm Beach State College. I am currently working on my education for a Bachelors of Art for Animation at University of Tampa.

I worked at Brewzzi’s in WPB for three years. I started as a Food Run- ner in 2011, where I ran the guest food to their tables. I would also bus tables and clean the bathrooms.

In 2013, I was asked to expand my responsibilities to include helping the bar as a Bar Back. I would make sure the bar was clean, wash glas- ses and stock the bar with what the bartenders needed, such as liquor, limes or simple syrup.

After my time with Brewzzi’s, I worked at Brio Tuscan Grill for six months in West Palm Beach as a Food Runner, Busser and Bar Back. I later transferred to Tampa doing the same three jobs. After working with Brio in Tampa for a year I started working as a Banquet server where help sever parties.
