He has decades of experience in the hospitality field, in resort development and operations, and in project design and construction in the United States and overseas. In an earlier life, he owned several restaurants, managed a hotel, and owned a commercial real estate company. In his last enterprise, he was the owner of a manufacturing plant producing 3D panels for telecom shelters, mining applications, and general home construction.

He founded the South Carolina chapter of “La Chaine des Rotisseur”, one of the world’s oldest and most renown food and wine societies. He was recognized as “restaurateur of the year” and received many other rewards for his work in the food and beverage industry.
