What is your background?
I worked in finance for over a decade and decided I needed a change. I started as an overnight baker at Easy Tiger and really liked the bread making process and working with my hands. I fell in love with sourdough.
What attracted you to working at Jester King?
Jester King is the first brewery I went to after moving to Austin. I had no idea what farmhouse/sour beer was and was overwhelmed by the experience as a guest. It became my favorite place in Austin.
What does our philosophy of “time, place and people” mean to you?
There is a Japanese concept called ichigo-ichie. It means in this moment, never again. At this time, at this place, with these people you will have a uniquely wonderful experience. It can never be fully replicated. Cherish it.
What do you love most about working at Jester King?
The ability to express myself creatively drives me, and the fact that I can be myself and fully accepted in every instance.
What are a few of your favorite Jester King beers? A few of your favorite food menu items?
Beer? Clean: Unfiltered Pilsner, Necrølith; Mixed Culture: Snörkel, Reposé; Collabs: Even More Jeppe, Terroir Project
For food, our Tres Leches Bread Pudding with Suspiro frosting is the perfect marriage of Honduran and Dominican baking. I've also heard good things about the Hill County Sourdough.
What else do you enjoy drinking?
St. Elmo Carl, Live Oak Pilz, and jugo de maracuyá - iykyk.
