I was born and raised in New Haven, Connecticut where I spent my entire life until moving to Austin, Texas in 2013 after graduating from college in southern CT. I moved here with my entire family, looking to expand my horizons in one of the best states in the country! I studied Business Finance in college, but have always loved working in the hospitality and service industry. I was lucky enough to befriend some awesome fellow northeastern natives who worked at Mean Eyed Cat and soon enough I was part of the team. This bar is extremely special to all of us, including our wonderful guests who have become like family. It is the epitome of a Texas country bar, with amazing people, BBQ, awesome vibes, and of course great music. Work never feels like work, and that is what I love most about it. I’m happier than ever to be a part of the team here at Mean Eyed Cat. In my spare time I love to spend time with my friends and family, ride my Harley, and do anything that involves being outdoors. Having played soccer for 23 years I’m a big sports fan who loves soccer, hockey, basketball, baseball, boxing and mixed martial arts. I am a huge dog and animal lover, and have 2 pit bulls I adore more than anything. I also have an enormous passion for food and cooking. Italian, Indian, and Thai food are my favorite cuisines.
