Before joining Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada:
I've had a lot of interesting life and work experiences, starting at the age of six as a performer and moving to directing and choreographing for companies as diverse as Virginia Opera to Disneyland (among others). I landed in Corporate America after moving to Las Vegas in 1999, show directing the grand opening of Madame Tussaud's at The Venetian. My work in Corporate America includes GameWorks (a restaurant, arcade and bar created by Steven Spielberg, Universal Studios and SEGA) in multiple roles for their 17 US locations during my tenure, from National Entertainment Manager, Director of Guest Experience to ending my time there as Director of Training and Development. Most recently I was the Service Operations Director for Caesars Interactive Entertainment, Inc. helping launch and becoming responsible for everything from Customer Support to day-to-day operations for their real money online gambling sites in Nevada and New Jersey.
Education: A graduate of Coronado High School in Scottsdale, Arizona, with a continuing education in learning something from everyone I've ever met and every experience I've had in my life.
About me: I am an avid movie and musical theatre junkie which includes collecting vintage movie posters. My best moments in life are spent with family, friends and my spouse of 30 years, Michael, laughing about anything and everything.
My wish would be: To give a TED talk based on my best selling book (not written yet) and stand-up comedy (which hasn't happened yet).
