Location: Southpark Meadows

How long have you worked for DoubleDave’s?

I’ve been at Southpark Meadows almost 3 years and I worked at Bastrop for a year before this.

What’s your favorite DoubleDave’s product?

The deep dish crust. Its crispy and fluffy at the same time, its delicious. I’m pretty basic, I like pepperoni pizza.

Ranch or red sauce?

Neither? I just want to eat the food straight up because its so good, I don’t need sauce with it.

Favorite Pizza of the Month so far?

Oh, that one’s pretty hard, I don’t think I ever got tired of the Black Bean Quesadilla. It’s sooo good!

Best experience with a customer?

Mike came in for the first time to a DoubleDave’s at this store, I told him what we are popular for and ran back and put a Peproni Roll in the oven for him to try. Ever since then, he always comes back and he’s super friendly, he travels a lot and always stops by when he’s in town. I enjoy seeing him when he comes in, I always give him a hug even though he was a random stranger until I worked here.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Probably still working for DoubleDave’s and potentially own my own store.

What is your favorite part about working for DoubleDave’s?

The people I work with, that’s my favorite thing. You meet great people and make great friendships. Sometimes it’s really hard work here and they’re the ones that have helped me grow and love the job even more than I already did.

What advice would you give to recent new hires?

Do your job, get stuff done and you’ll be on everyone’s good side. Even if you learn slow or take a while, just learn to do it right and you’ll be okay!

How’d you get the name Cobain?

Kurt Cobain died the same day my mother found out she was pregnant with me and believed he was my guardian angel.

Do you believe in aliens?

Oh yeah, I do! I believe they’re out there, there’s no proof but there’s not a lot of proof for everything, half the ocean hasn’t been discovered yet, who’s to say that aliens don’t exist?

If you were on an island and could only bring three things, what would you bring?

Definitely a hatchet, rope, and a tarp. Survival necessities.

You’re a new addition to the crayon box. What color would you be?

Violent Violet! I get Hurricane Cobain a lot, so I like Violent Violet!

On that note, how many different colors has your hair been?

Ha! Can we just say what colors my hair hasn’t been? I’ve had every color besides highlighter yellow.

If Hollywood made a movie about your life, who would you like to see cast as you?

People always say I look like Drew Barrymore, but I would love Keira Knightley to play me.

What did you want to be when growing up?

A culinary chef like Gordon Ramsay, I always wanted to go to Hell’s Kitchen.

What do you like to do on your days off?

Play League of Legends, longboard, go out with friends, sometimes paint.

What is the first thing you’d buy if you won the lottery?

A car. If I won the lottery it’d be a Lambo!

What music do you like to play on your shift?

System of a Down! I’ve been playing a lot of instrumental music lately. But I always go back to S.O.A.D.

Anything else you want to add?

Some days are tough, but I have so many good moments with people here that’s what keeps me going and that’s what keeps me working just as hard as ever.
