My first paying restaurant gig was back in 1981, as a waiter and cook for a hotel restaurant. That job later turned into a job a KBob's. Got my first taste of management there, while still in high school. Worked in restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and radio stations through college. Managed a mom and pop Italian American restaurant from 1990-1993, bounced around for a year. Started working for my current employer back in 1994. Been there ever since! I was born in Schaffhausen, Switzerland and grew up in Marshall, Texas.
