I have been in the restaurant industry for over 30 years as a manageer, bartender, server and caterer. In 2017 I moved to Deadwood with a dream of becoming a Blackjack dealer. I have always enjoyed playing cards and my life work has been in hospitality and making people happy whether it be food, beverage or gambling.
