My wife and I moved to South Carolina 9 years ago from NY. She became an attorney and I wanted to be business mogul. I have successfully launched three thriving different businesses, the most prized for me is our Non Profit foundation which works towards helping elderly veterans, and veterans that live in rural areas keep their VA appointments. A new chapter we are now focusing on is teaching the youth the language of computer coding, from Oregon to Africa. I have worked in the hospitality industry for 15 years, I have been management 12 years, and a general manager for 6 years. Over the past four years I have held dual positions for Solara hospitality, a growing Hospitality management company formerly Gateway Hospitality. Being the Chief Engineer and F&B director at one point Supervising housekeeping as well. I have grown tremendously with this company, while trying to remain humble, leaving this company will be bitter sweet however I am ready for a new challenge and look forward to being a major asset for your company.
