I worked regular shifts in the cafe for some time, which I enjoyed in the extreme. I had the opportunity to work with many wonderful people that I still count as friends to this day. I also got to trip out on coffee. I love making coffee. I love coffee!
As time went by, I found myself pulled into websites and the Internet, and I began building sites for the music projects I was involved in. Being at the Speakeasy, I was able to learn from many talented and brainy people. Eventually, I began working at the tech desk, helping customers with their tech and Internet needs. At one point, I even began doing audio encoding for customer websites through Speakeasy.
