Oakland Coffee is all about kick starting your day. What is your morning boot up sequence?

It for sure starts with me making coffee, and watching an episode or 2 of Seinfeld. Followed by emails, until I get annoyed by them, and go back to watching Seinfeld. More coffee, and then finish emails.

What’s off the table prior to drinking coffee?

Emails, doing things in general lol.

What’s your coffee order / how do you take it?

Usually iced, and I just take it black.

What’s your coffee brewing set up? (Give us a rig rundown)

Cheap coffee pot, the ones your parents had the whole time you lived at home, and never seemed to break.

Sunset or sunrise?

Depends on my mood.

Are you reading, listening or watching anything interesting?

If you haven't seen I Think You Should Leave on Netflix, do yourself a favor and watch it right now. Tim Robinson is the best.

What inspires you?

Live music, and trying to capture the energy of it.

Any new habits or hobbies?

Not really a super new hobby, but I've been getting tattooed way more frequently this year.

Where were you born?

Minnesota, not sure exactly, but close to Minneapolis.

Has your coffee routine changed throughout your life?

I drink it WAY more, almost too much.

One breakfast food you can’t live without?

Sausage for sure.

Best advice you’ve ever been given?

Don't start something you can't finish.

Hot or cold shower?


What do you have coming up that you're most looking forward to?

Shows! I think I might tear up at our first show back.
