Professional Summary
I have over ten years of restaurant experience.  I am very motivated and loyal.  Restaurants are my comfort zone.  While I am educated and very intelligent, I do get bored by the idea of sitting behind a desk all day.  I believe I work my best in chaos and I am a very knowledgeable trainer.  Bartending and serving are my niche, but I am always looking to learn something new and possibly gain more responsibility and experience.

Bar Manager Mar 2014Sep 2014 The White Inn Fredonia, NY I am a very speedy and reliable bartender.  I moved up the food chain fairly quickly and was promoted to Bar Manager after a few short weeks.  Some of my responsibilities include:  inventory, ordering, drink specials, drink menus, scheduling and dealing with beverage reps.  I do have some kitchen experience on the 'cold side.'  I am very interested in mixology.  I approach drink making the same way I cook.  I make my own bitters, infuse my own alcohol and I also make simple syrups from ingredients I have grown in my own garden.  I also carry my own Japanese knife roll and I see no point in doing something if it is not done right.  I am very creative and I also have photographic memory, so the regulars always feel welcomed and is if they belong in no time.
Bartender/ Head Server May 2011May 2014 EBC West Fredonia, NY This establishment is a two story brewery.  I gained a great deal of knowledge about beer here and developed a great relationship with the kitchen staff.  I could handle more tables than any other employee and do it seamlessly, without losing my cool.  EBC is notorious for understaffing, so I learned a great deal about multitasking and speed.  I can free pour a drink accurately with my eyes closed.  This place is also a downtown college bar.  I do very well in 'chaos' situations and can handle a bar that is three people deep while a band is playing. 
Server/ Bartender/ Expo/ Carside/ Host May 2005May 2011 Applebee's Neighborhood Bar and Grill Dunkirk, NY I worked here for six years and worked every front of the house position there was.  I never called in sick and always did what was asked.  From working in a corporate restaurant, I know about safe service of alcohol, health and food regulations and most of all, consistency.  Again, I am fast efficient and can save an establishment money in labor.  I was the fastest expeditor and I haven't worked here in four years, but the management still talks about how fast I could do that job that was meant for two people.
