The Dirty Drummer

Through my twenties, I did a lot of things. I earned an Associates Degree from Paradise Valley Community College, and a Bachelors Degree from Arizona State University.

In addition, I managed Alice’s Restaurant, and curated the art gallery inside.

I also was also the Editor in Chief for SLAM Magazine, in addition to being a staff writer for The East Valley Tribune, State Press Magazine and State Press News. In addition, I freelanced for College Affair Magazine.

Through all of that, I worked at The Dirty Drummer Bar and Grill as a bar tender. The owner’s name is Zane Anderson, and he is still a friend. He went out of his way to work around all my other projects and give me a schedule I could work to supplement my income.

I worked there for a long time, and I am proud to have made life long friends there.

It’s not the nicest bar in the world. However, it is a lot like that show Cheers, with regular customers who you need to know by name and drink. We had theme nights, dressed up for Halloween, and did a 5k every year to raise money for breast cancer research. It was a lot like a family.
