How I can help you

I have over 45 years of experience in the hospitality industry, as an owner, operator, consultant and college level instructor for restaurants, bars, clubs, hotels and casino operations. I specialize in assisting operators with start-ups, business plans, projections, budgets, lease negations, kitchen design, bar operations, hiring, training, vendor relationship, and day to day operations with an emphasis and life long passion for customer service. I am certified by California Superior Court to provide “Expert Testimony” and I am a licensed Private Investigator in CA and NV. I published a nationwide monthly newsletter, “HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY REPORT” for 16 years and have taught culinary, bar and lounge, restaurant, hotel and casino management at San Diego Mesa College for 19 years and San Diego State University, CES for 7 years. In July 2007 San Diego State University recognized me as “Instructor of the Year”. I am also designated by the American Hotel and Lodging Educational Institute as a Certified Hospitality Instructor, having taught Hospitality Law for over 30 years. My life and business mission statement is "Making the World a Better Place to Eat, Drink, Stay and Play!"
