What do you do at Black Star?
I make the food and play with mah Black Star peeps.
Where are you from?
I am from a small town called Montgomery, New York which is part of the gorgeous Hudson Valley.
Your favorite beer on Tap?
My favorite beer on tap is Pneuma for a refreshing wind-down drink especially during the summer. But to feel EXCELLENT, Vulcan, without a doubt, does a wonderful job.
The part of working at a cooperative would be...?
Togetherness. Laugh, learn, grow and be merry.
Do you have any tips on how to not burn out in the Kitchen?
Excellent excellent question. I think the best trick is: lotsa coffee and some more coffee, make stupid jokes, and giddy laughters. No matter how tired you are, you gotta laugh even if your face muscles don't want to work anymore to smile.
What's your favorite late-late night snack?
Ramen, all the way!
Say a cave-in trapped the kitchen team underground during a spelunking/team building trip gone awry, what are the chances you all would make it out?
I never thought the kitchen team would be in a scenario like this. I can imagine we started a campfire in the cave and created some excellent, mouth-watering feast including ramen. And of course, we would wash down with some delicious Black Star Co-op brews. We'd die happy as we see the blurry rocks fall on our heads. Yeah, that sounds like a painful happily ever after. The end.
Have you ever seen an alien?
No, but that would be an horrifying dream of mine to accomplish one day.
