What is your position with Tin Whiskers? 

Brand Ambassador

How long have you worked here?

Since June 2016

What do you like to do in your free time?

I don't really have a lot of free time, but when I do I like to play guitar, and weight lift. I spend all of my time either playing guitar in one of my bands, working out, or beer! 

What is your favorite style of music / band?

I love Metal and Country. Best band in the world is Pantera. 

If you could travel anywhere, where would you go and why?

I want to tour the world someday, but I mostly want to go to Norway. Good metal there, and also good beer! 
Besides the basic necessities, what do you need / do every day to make yourself happy? 

I work a lot, so I don't have the much free time. When I do, my life pretty much consists of playing guitar in my three bands, weight lifting, and craft beer.

What is your favorite part about working at a brewery?

I love Tin Whiskers! Working for a brewery has been a life goal of mine since I started home brewing in 2009. I love being able to watch the brewing process. It has been an amazing experience to see the workings of a brewery. I eventually would like to be a professional brewer, so it's great to be around brewing as much as possible. 

If you had to pick one style of beer to describe yourself, which style would it be and why?

Definitely IPA! I've always gravitated towards IPA's since I started drinking beer. The first craft beer given to me was by my old friend when I was still living in Iowa. It was an IPA. So, I think of IPA's as my introduction to craft beer! 

What is your favorite Twin Cities hang out spot?

Triple Rock Social Club

Anything else you want the world to know about you?

Beer and guitars make the world go round. Drink local good beer!
