 About Me

I was born and raised in beautiful San Antonio, and I've been lucky to call it home for 45 years. I've spent most of my professional life right in downtown San Antonio, along the iconic river walk. It's where my love for event planning grew over the past 20 years.

As I got more serious about my work, I found a passion for sales and marketing, which opened up new opportunities and helped me grow both personally and professionally.

I later jumped back into the world of hotels and lodging, reigniting my love for the industry. Over the years, I've been part of the success of our Conventions and Tourism market.

This has given me the amazing chance to organize special events for lots of big Fortune 500 companies, and take care of VIPs like sports stars, musicians, and celebrities, as well as all the visitors and locals who've come through our doors.

I've been lucky to work with some amazing people in the food and beverage/hospitality industry. We've put in a lot of hard work, sharing our skills and knowledge, which has really helped me get better at what I do. Life's always changing, and I'm excited about what the next 20 years will bring.

I'm looking forward to growing personally and seizing new opportunities. Let's make connections, share what we're good at, and go on this journey of growth and success together. We can do great things!
