Welcome to Rock & Rye.  This site is about my journey into music, cocktails, and the rest of my life.  I am in my mid 20’s and work as a CAD drafter/CNC programmer/Fabricator – Installer for a countertop company in western Washington.  This is a place where I can share my love, knowledge, and learning experiences with anyone who cares to read about them.


Music has always been a big part of my life.  I have been playing and listening to music since I was five, and have some certifications from the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, ON.  I have been a part of a few bands, and continue to play in my spare time.


My interest in Cocktails started in my early 20’s and I love to read about and create new drinks, as well as to host events for friends and family.


I hope you enjoy my journey as much as I do.
