I have lived in five cities; four of which I have lived in two separate times. From 1985 to 2017, I worked at twelve hotels in five major markets. I have motorcycled through thirty states and six countries. Along the way I have made many life-long friends, and a few enemies. I’ve encountered numerous famous people and had many adventures. Every time I tell one of these stories, the response I get is the same: “You should write a book”.
The following memoir recounts some of those accomplishments and influential people, as well as some destructive behavior. It is a series of short stories, weaved together with brief life history. All of the stories together tell a complete story of how my life and personality has been shaped by my hotel career, as well as how I got into and out of the hotel business.
I’m lucky to be here to tell these stories.
