I love what I do “making people feel, and look beautiful”
The Wildflower Squad
I started off working for non-profits, then teaching at charter schools in marginalized communities throughout Chicago, Oakland, CA and Portland, Oregon. My passion for learning, teaching and history is undeniable, but I was struggling financially, so I began moonlighting as a bartender just to make ends meet, and unexpectedly fell madly in love with every aspect of the bar business.
The name, Wildflower Squad, represents all the people, and places that I hold dearest to my heart. My parents, Petra and Fidencio, and godmother, Teresa had tumultuous childhoods.
Their only escape from there abusive reality was to run through fields of wildflowers. I was blessed to have strong women and men in my life, and this is my way of saying thank you.
For my squad and I it is about so much more than making a great cocktail. It’s about memories, music, history and sharing those moments, ensuring you embrace the present, reflect on the past and securing a bright future.
Javier is the President/Historian for The Wildflower Squad which is Bartending Service for Private Events as well as offering consulting for Bar owners who can be reached at 1-630-809-7692 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
