A little bit about me:
I am a country boy born and raised in Darlington Wisconsin and moved to Las Vegas January 1980. I was married and raised three beautiful children who are all grown now.  Also, I am recently married as of August 27th 2009.
In January 1980 I started work at the Marina Hotel & Casino which is now part of the MGM Grand. In 1981 I went to the Flamingo Hilton where I was hired as a floor man in the Slot Department.  I continued my career with many positions over the next eleven years Hosting, Shift Manager in Slots and Director of Customer Service.  I was then recruited to the Tropicana 1992 were I worked as an Executive Casino Host for seven years.   In 1999 I was then offered a position at the Desert Inn Hotel & Casino with a group of hostsss that worked at the Tropicana and was now called a Player Development Executive. This is when my career took off as I was now with a one of a kind group of hosts that took care of the customers, worked as a team ,and we had a first class hotel & casino for our customers.  After the Desert Inn closed in 2000, the Player Development Team moved our sites to Harrah's & Rio.  With the growth of Harrah's entertainment we have now added The Quad, Flamingo, Bill's, Bally's, Paris and Caesars Palace to our wonderful group of properties. We as a group have also grown by adding a few new members to our Player Development Team and with that we look forward to a long and standing relationship with our customers.  
If you are new to the casino and would like to experience the greatest group of hosts in Las Vegas along with some fantastic properties please give me a call and I will go to work for you. 
I look forward to hearing from you! 
Best Regards,
