How I can help you
My work experience extends almost forty years. The majority of my business experience has been in lodging, corporate housing, meeting planning and some information technology. I have opened or been on the acquisition team of over 20 hotels and corporate housing locations, meaning that I have started about 20 businesses. This extensive experience has provided the necessary background for all phases of business, from starting a business from an idea to working with existing businesses in order to improve them.
