I was Born and raised in the Bronx New York. When I was 18 I was lucky to discover the art of barbering. I fell in love with the discipline that it takes to hone the craft and that every single day you learn because even the same head of hair changes. Being a self motivator I loved the fact that I was only in competition with myself to make the next cut better than my last one. Wanting to expand career opportunities I took on cosmetology which led me to becoming a session stylist In New York City where I excelled and in a short time I had done hair for photoshoots and fashion shows televison etc. Today I work as a Barber at Vicktor Stevenson Salon In San Francisco California. My love for all things hair , to grow and improve and the passion that I have when behind the chair translates directly to my business Gourmonade. With no culinary background I have learned a ton in the last two years about the food and beverage industry. Every single day is a learning opportunity. Being able to inject newly found knowledge into my business and watch it grow that excites me! Not one ounce of citrus I squeeze or pour is taken for granted. I absolutely love making Gourmonade and bringing summer to winter.
