SMITH: a specialist in a specific craft or discipline

My original career path started in 2010 and was focused in Industrial Engineering Consulting & Design. I started bartending as an escape from the monotony of that work, and I fell in love with it.  Since then, I have been involved in the craft cocktail & bar industry for the last 8 years.


With my BARSmith Service, I bring my specific set of design skills, cocktail expertise, and an eye for meticulous detail to bear for my clients. I am capable of covering all facets of your specific design needs from graphics and branding, to inventory recognition and pricing, to full 3D interior construction layouts, as well as staff training. My client portfolio ranges from bars and nightclubs, to catering services and festivals, to distilleries and breweries, as well as retrofitting and refurbishing existing facility layouts.


Like a blacksmith to a molten ore I will refine, shape, and perfect your design to meet your specific needs.  So whether you’re starting from scratch or just need to reinvigorate an existing layout, I hope you’ll consider BARSmith for the job!
