What I love about DC area the most: There is so much to love about the DC area. There is always something to do or somewhere to go. Diversity is the common theme here, as it should be. With people from all over, there is an abundance of great places to eat…and not just your typical chain restaurants. Being the capital of the free world and where the federal government is, DC is a great place to be for business. Companies from all over the world, large and small, establish a presence here. That means the job market stays strong and the atmosphere for entrepreneurs is ripe. I still get chills when I walk past the White House & Capitol building. What a great place to live!
About me: I have been a resident of Washington, DC for 4 years. Prior to relocating to DC, I lived in Savannah, GA where I spent 13 years in the City’s hospitality industry. I attended Georgia Southern University where I was a football walk-on and studied History before switching over to business. I worked in Savannah’s hospitality industry while in high school and college, then went on to launch two start-up companies which catered to the local hospitality industry. In 2006, The Savannah Business Journal named me as one of Savannah’s “40 under 40” business leaders.
In 2007, I entered the DC executive office space industry. I held a management position with The Regus Group, the world’s largest provider of outsourced office solutions, and consulted with DC Business Centers, a local executive space office provider. I am now the Vice President of DC Executive Space. I have worked with clients from all over the world to secure executive office space in Washington, DC and other major cities such as Boston, New York, Houston, Miami, and Tampa. My clients have consisted of entrepreneurs, small businesses, Fortune 500 companies, embassies, governmental organizations, government contractors, law firms, staffing companies, and more.
In my spare time, I enjoy traveling with my fiancé and anything to do with football. A Georgia native, I am a huge University of Georgia Bulldog fan and I am a player/coach for the school’s DC alumni chapter flag football team.
