It's not easy to look back on my work and life experiences in order to categorize myself. But one aspect that remains constant is that I'm an entrepreneur by nature. I have been an audio/visual freelancer providing technology services for some of the largest corporations in the world. I've spent most of that career coordinating and working with people in the hospitality industry. This experience has merged technology and hospitality into my realm of knowledge. I also have a creative side. I have a 20-year background in music education. I've been a music producer and an author. I've written an ebook about music education and I continue to produce articles about music for several websites on the internet. My latest venture is wine distribution. It's a passion of mine that comes from my Italian background. I will be using all of my entrepreneurial, creative, technology, hospitality, and travel experiences to connect with restaurant owners, hotel managers, and other retailers. Together we will build boutique brands and enhance the experience of wine drinking for consumers.
