My first job at the age of 14 was a dishy in a local restaurant, and thus began my love affair with Hospitality and Tourism. I worked this $5 per hour job to fund my airfare to do a student exchange to Germany whilst in high school. Not knowing exactly what I wanted to do when I finished school, I enrolled in a hospitality course at TAFE.
This course opened up enormous employment opportunities and awoke my desire to further my education and travel. It allowed me to work and earn money whilst I studied a degree in tourism at Southern Cross University. Whilst completing my degree I took part in the Work Experience USA program and gained some valuable work experience at Mammoth Mountain Ski Resort in California.
Once I completed my degree the only thing I knew for sure is that I wanted to travel. My studies and experience allowed me to continue travelling the world, whilst earning money doing what I love. Thus I undertook an 18 - month management traineeship with the Millenium Harvest House in Boulder Colorado in the USA. This traineeship gave me an in-depth understanding of all departments of a busy 260+ room resort. I ended up as the night manager responsible for the entire operation overnight before completing the traineeship.
Upon returning to Australia I began working as the assistant manager at the Lake Jindabyne Hotel. This position still allowed me to travel in the offseason spending time travelling around Australia, Indonesia, Thailand, and South America over the years. Jindabyne is where I met my beautiful wife and had my first child.
The need to be closer to family to help raise our now three children led us to move to the Central Coast NSW. Here over the years, I worked at some great venues as the hotel manager. I helped grow these businesses considerably during my tenure. Turning some of these venues around on the brink of receivership with little or no budget to work with. I ended up as the CEO of a local golf club before becoming the founder and managing director at Evolve Hospitality in 2018. I am truly blessed to say that I still have as much passion for the industry today as I did at the beginning, over 25 years ago.
