A veteran of the restaurant and retail service industry, I am a creative, energetic and self-motivated worker.
I am accustomed to the responsibility and attention to detail that is required in dealing with a high volume
of customers and fast turn-around of product. I am focused, very organized and highly efficient in a fast paced
environment. I am versatile and practical, able to prioritize, follow through and complete tasks. I enjoy meeting
interesting people and in my spare time I am an internationally recognized performance artist.
