I eat, sleep and breathe meetings, hospitality and everything related. As the CEO of E-proDirect I would love to say that I get a thrill out of managing all the day to day operations but I really enjoy using my creativity. Although I have worn every hat within the company, I am currently more focused on new projects and innovations that enable our clients to get the best experience possible.
Although I’ve lived in the hotel universe for the last 20 years I have spent most of my time with my primary focus on sales and marketing within the meetings and conventions world. I am deeply involved with MPI, PCMA, DMAI and HSMAI and was honored in 2007 with HSMAI’s “Top 25 Most Extraordinary Minds in Hospitality & Travel Sales & Marketing” award.
When I can squeeze in some free time you can find me at the spa, sitting on a beach reading a book, or spending time with family and friends. I love to travel especially when I can take advantage of more adventurous pursuits such as zip lining, ATVing, and sky diving (and I have the video to prove it!).
