Hospitality has been at the core of my family's identity since before I can remember. My parents met working at a Chinese take-out spot, and my father and uncle would later start their own restaurant.
That connection to handcrafted food and beverages stayed with me, and ever since I've been fascinated in telling the incredible stories that have emerged from the hospitality industry. For the past four years, I've served as Marketing Manager for Ratio Beerworks, an emerging craft brewery in the heart of downtown Denver. And for the past eight years, I've owned and operated PorchDrinking.com, a national craft beer publication.
Now I'm excited to assemble an all-star team of creatives to offer clients within the hospitality industry the very best in all facets of hospitality marketing.
My approach is driven on thinking outside the box, remaining true to your brand identity, utilizing analytics to drive decision making, and focusing on the incredible people and personalities that fuel your business.
