His career has spanned the Pacific Northwest, the northern Mountain states and New England, including an chef apprenticeship to internationally competing Chef David Strouts (Portland, OR), hotels (Hyatt Bellevue, Ritz-Carlton Boston and several independents), restaurants ranging from 4-Diamond to multi-units to Mom’n’Pops, a medium-sized architecture firm, the military and strategic brand consulting.

Always up for an adventure!

  1. Jeff:
    I saw your posting on the wine and hospitality network and have been perusing your blog and business site.
    I own a small lodging business in Walla Walla and am involved in social media personally (FB and “life in walla walla” blog). The trend in town is growing and I want to get involved in helping small businesses create an online presence.
    I have a marketing background, but lack the technical skills required. I’m also tired of working alone. I have many hospitality contacts in town and wondered if you have any interest in having a conversation to see if we could help each other. I look forward to hearing from you.
