“I was born and raised in Jacksonvile, FL. and I entered the United States Air Force at the age of 19. Once discharged I attended York College, York, NE and studied liberal arts. I have lived in nine different states across the U.S. and I developed a love for food that was born out of over thirty years in the food and beverage industry. After spending the last ten years of my time in the food and beverage industry in private country clubs I transitioned to Hilton hotels. Over that time period I was on the opening team of three separate Hilton Brand hotels, two of which were Connie Award winning hotels. Happily I now serve as the General Manager of Snug Harbor Resort & Marina on San Juan Island, WA. I have a deep commitment to the community and most especially I am committed to the future of our youth.”
