"I don’t think I consciously thought it was weird that there weren’t a lot of bartenders of colour, because that’s how it’s always been. In the world at large, not just in the bar scene. Growing up in Calgary, which is very white, you have to assimilate for your own safety. For me, that assimilation mindset is still there.”
