With more than 30 years in the beverage, hospitality, and information systems business, I have devoted my life to mastering the art of practically everything. I've been a business owner, a writer, an actor, a software developer, an antique dealer, a world-traveler, a husband, and, my greatest accomplishment, father to the sweetest little girl you'll ever meet! I've survived cancer, the break-up of The Beatles, and the 1980's. I've been truly blessed with a strange and exotic life. Hopefully I will inspire you to step out of the path of ordinary and follow your dreams.
