Severe Weather Events can mean opportunity for the properly prepared Restaurant Owner

I am resident of Connecticut and over the past three months we have been hit by two major storms, Hurricane Irene and recently Winter Storm Alfred. Hurricane Irene resulted in property damage along the coast line and power outages throughout the state,  as one would expect with a hurricane.  Freak snow storm Alfred, which dumped a 8 to 12 inches of snow in October, resulted in major tree damage across the state along with week long power outages.  Why because leaves were still on the trees…See More

Biography
My dad is a graduate of CIA and although he didn't pursue a career in the restaurant industry he sure taught me how to appreciate good food. His creative cooking and knack for flavor made me a foodie. Through college I worked in the restaurant industry in Orlando as a server, bartender and even a dishwasher so I have a tremendous appreciation for the opportunities and challenges associated with the industry.

My company, Fulcrum Design, LLc, was founded in 2001 as strategic management and business development consulting firm that has expanded over the years into health care, hospitality and technology. Fulcrum’s technology niche is in the emerging area of interactive technology solutions. I have an excellent team of technologists and creative partners, that I contribute to my success. My professional passion is business development and technology. I find it fulfilling when I can integrate both disciplines into a solution that advances my clients towards achieving their goals.

I have a beautiful wife and a remarkable four year old daughter along with two “doggie sister” Maggie and Casey. My hobbies include teaching graduate course in strategic planning, organizational design and economics. Oh, I am also an avid Rotarian.

We currently still use the entertainment book and have a few Waterford Lakes coupons out there for the movie theater and the town center. …
