I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and attended Iowa State University, graduating with a degree in hospitality management. I also have a master’s degree in management from North Central College. My wife and I have two daughters, Peyton and Sydney. I have worked in both sales and operations for Hilton, Marriott, and IHG. I enjoy running, cooking and attending all my daughters’ sports events in my spare time.
