I've worked in hospitality all my life; from busboy to bar back, doorman to front desk, reservations to revenue. My hotel journey began at the Hyatt Regency Dallas then moved to the Hyatt Regency Austin. Life brought my family to Nashville where I completed a degree at Belmont University then came back to hotel work at the Hilton Nashville Downtown for just under 10 years; during which time I also helped manage Union Station - Autograph Collection.
I joined HSMAI a few years ago and obtained my CRME which helped enhance my knowledge and experience. I am working on obtaining a CHDM in the near future.
