What brought you to Las Vegas?
I came out to Vegas for my Internship in 2006 and right away knew that Vegas was the place for me. I finished up my degree in Hospitality Management in Florida and moved to Vegas a few weeks later. I was hooked by the bright lights and massive hotels!
What do you love most about Las Vegas?
As a hospitality guy it’s difficult NOT to love Vegas! From the bustling Las Vegas Nightlife to the fantastic array of restaurants and bars, it has everything I could want. I’m not much of a gambler, but I LOVE to eat and I thoroughly enjoy trying out different restaurants. It’s also great that Vegas is a city that so many people want to visit, so I have friends and family dropping in all the time.
What is your favorite restaurant/dish at that restaurant?
This is a tough one as I have so many places that I enjoy. I would have to say that Firefly and Bachi Burger are my top two though! Definitely worth the drive off the strip for either place. My favorite dish at Firefly has to be the Filet Mignon Sliders! As for Bachi Burger, you can’t go wrong with the Miyagi-sanʼs Grass Fed Wagyu Burger.
What do you do in your spare time?
I enjoy hanging out at the local bars or relaxing at home and playing some Madden. I try to head out to as many local events around town as I can, especially the Food Truck Festivals.
