A new professional producing events for a DMC in the Tampa, FL area. I am starting to build lasting relationships with professionals in our industry. A thirst for knowledge that is not easily quenched, I am looking to make a difference in the world. Maybe difference is not the right word, wanting to make an impact on the world somehow, someway.
