As a 23 year veteran in the bar/restaurant/nightclub industry, I have a deep connection within the nightlife scene. Born and raised here in Phoenix I have contacts at so many bars in Phoenix, Peoria, Glendale, Scottsdale, Desert Ridge, and Tempe. Started at the bottom as a busser in High School, to the top as an owner of a small sports bar and now bar manager of a $5 million+ a year Irish pub/sports bar/dance club. Best part of this business is just out interacting with people.
As a bartender/coordinator/manager of McFaddens Westgate, I have been a intrical piece to the some of the biggest events to ever hit Arizona. Super Bowl XLIX, 2015 BCS National Championship, 2011- present Fiesta Bowls, Arizona Cardinals regular season and playoff games, Monday Night Football, Arizona Coyotes regular season/playoff games, Monster Jam, Nitro Circus, Street League, and numerous concerts at the Gila River Arena in Glendale.
Director of several production events such as live shows with DJ Scottyboy, Scooter and Lavelle, and the 2015 Groove Cruise Pre Party (Red Bull Sponsored event). Also, yearly St. Patricks, Cinco De Mayo, and 4th of July events to go along with the weekly promos and theme parties.
Bartender/manager at a well established $5+ mil/year bar inside the Westgate Entertainment District.
High volume bartender. Opened the bar as the "new" Hurricane Bay nightclub after a 300k remodel turned a beach themed bar into a "Vegas" style nightclub.
Purchased a small sports bar along with 2 partners. Bad business investment. Tough and costly lesson to learn. On the bright side, I learned ablolutely 100% how to run, operate, and market a bar and manage people.
High volume bartender at the "hot spot" of the Westside of Phoenix for the life of the bar. Was hired as a new store opener and worked until it was closed exactly 2 years later.
Bartender at the first sports bar/nightclub in Peoria. Was part of the opening staff. I left to open El Toro Bravo.
Marketing major. Played linebacker for 2 seasons for the #13 team in the country.
