Must have clothing or accessory item while working an event? Must have super comfy black Sketcher shoes to wear with the event standard all black dress code.
If you had one superhero power what would it be? The ability to read my clients (and my wife's) mind.
Dream client/event? The Olympics
What's one skill anyone in the industry should have? This would have to be a tie between patience and resourceful. Without these skills, your career will be short and stressful.
What is your greatest achievement - personal or business? It would have to be running 2 companies (my DJ company from 1994-2014) and Infinity Events (2001 to now) while being a stay at home dad to my 2 beautiful daughters. It was a lot of work but I wouldn't change one second.
Best advice for someone starting out in the events/hospitality event? I would advise new planners/producers to respect your vendors and learn everything you can from them. You cannot do your job without them. I would advise a new vendor to be more of a strategic partner rather than an order taker and to share all of the tools I need to sell your services without the need for back and forth phone calls and emails.
