"All we have to do is decide what to do with the time that is given to us." - Gandolf, Lord of the Rings (J.R.R Tolkien)
If you won the lottery tomorrow:
Pay off my entire family's debt, and then set up an investment firm to help hospitality entrepreneurs start their own businesses.
Advice you could offer to others:
Watch the Bill Murray documentary on Netflix. Nothing really matters in this life except the time we spend with each other. Spend it well.
Best advice you've ever gotten:
A mentor once told me that information without context is false empowerment. Changed my life.
Best compliment anyone could give you:
That I was there for them when they needed me.
Riskiest thing you've ever done:
Started a small business.
Skrillex, Dave Matthews, and my grandfather have all had a pretty massive impact on my life.
Is there something about you that would surprise people?
I don't use shaving cream. Ever.
How do you turn around a lousy day?
Going ham to bass. Music bangers in my truck usually does the trick. I DJ'd for a long time, and it's a pretty big release.
Most interesting place traveled & why:
Chichen Itza was pretty insane. Nothing like standing on top of an ancient temple to blow your mind.
What's the simplest thing you've never mastered?
Favorite part of usbg.org?
Networking with like-minded individuals and talking about the industry. I have formed a lot of deep friendships with my community because of USBG.
Watching me dance around when I DJ is pretty laughable.
If you could change jobs with anyone for a day, who would it be?
Elon Musk. I'd love to try and hack it for even just a day.
What other profession would you never try?
Retail. Seems like hell on earth.
If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the pearly gates?
You're lucky you know someone who knows someone.
Are you planning to attend one of the 2019 Regional Conferences?
