Background

I got into the bar business while attending The University of Mississippi. After graduation, I relocated to Las Vegas to work for Pure Management Group. Operating Nightclubs in Las Vegas was like attending Graduate Scholl for Nightlife. After Vegas, I became a Nightclub and Bar Consultant.

My first client was Jon Taffer from Bar Rescue on Spike TV. Since then, I've provided Nightclub and Bar Consulting across the United States, Mexico, and The Bahamas.

In 2017, I published Cocktail Currency. It's a bar math book examining the relationship between liquor cost, cocktail pricing, and profitability.

In 2018, I started providing Alcohol-Related Expert Witness Testimony specific to nightlife, intoxication, mechanical bulls, and Dram Shop.
