About Me

California native living in Virginia. I started my career in the Marine Corps, where I served in FAST Company and the infantry from 2002 to 2006, completing three combat deployments. After graduating from the College of William and Mary in 2009, I worked for both Oracle and Booz Allen Hamilton. My entry into the tour space started in business school. when I started a food tour company, followed by drink and ghost tours in the following years, which now operate in 15 states.

As a tour operator, I created Junket to address many of the challenges encountered by both the company and customers, and to create new types of experiences for guests. I believe everything has to be easy and focused on the customer. To that end, our product is aimed to enhance the end user’s experience. Junket has evolved to offer gamified experiences, seamless purchasing for digital experiences, business analytics and management dashboards for tour companies, and a video platform for tour companies that will be released in August 2021. In addition to the tour industry, I chair a nonprofit and founded a coffee company and a hard kombucha brewery.
