I was born and raised in Wichita, Kansas and graduated from Wichita State University, Go Shockers! My professional career started as a case manager at KETCH (Kansas Elks Training Center for the Handicapped). I worked at KETCH for 4 years before moving to Kansas City to work for Marriott International in 1995. I have been in the Hospitality business ever since. I got married to my wife, Nadia, in 1996. We have three children Julian, Giselle, and Gian. We enjoy taking trips back to Nadia's birth country of Peru, spending time with extended family, working in the yard, running and experiencing different cultures.
