 About Me

I was born and raised in the beautiful city of San Antonio, and I have had the incredible privilege of calling it home for 45 remarkable years. Throughout my professional journey, I have predominantly resided in downtown San Antonio, right along the iconic river walk! It was in this vibrant setting that my passion for event planning took root and flourished over the span of two decades.

As I became more dedicated to honing my craft, I embarked on a transformative path that led me to discover the sheer joy of sales and marketing. This additional skill-set not only expanded my horizons but also paved the way for unparalleled personal growth and numerous professional accolades within my career.

Continuing on my journey, I delved back into the realm of hotel and lodging within the ever-thriving hospitality industry, reigniting my unwavering passion for the world of hotels. Throughout the years, I have wholeheartedly contributed to the resounding success of our Conventions and Tourism market. 

This has granted me the extraordinary opportunity to host special events for a myriad of esteemed Fortune 500 companies, as well as cater to the needs of prominent VIPs including sports personalities, musicians, and celebrities, along with the countless visitors and locals alike who have graced our establishments.

I have had the privilege of collaborating with some of the most exceptional individuals in the food and beverage/hospitality industry. Together, we have worked tirelessly, pooling our talents and expertise, resulting in my continual mastery of the craft. Life is an ever-evolving journey, and I eagerly anticipate the next two decades, brimming with personal growth opportunities that lie ahead. Let us forge connections, share our talents, and embark on a collective journey of growth and success. Together, we can achieve greatness!
