After owning his own small business for eight years and working in the indoor hospitality industry focused on meetings and events, he was thrilled to join the outdoor hospitality industry, which combines his past work experience with his love of all things outdoors. When he's not working, he loves just about any outdoor activity—from camping to hiking, biking, climbing, running and fishing—as well as a few indoor activities, such as reading, woodworking and a good card game (Cribbage, Euchre and Gin are his favorites!).
