I am proud to have been born and raised in Tampa. I have lived here, played here and am humbled to have had the opportunity to achieve my dreams here.

In 1991 I got my first break and became the co-owner of the legendary Hyde Away.  In 1994, I opened Tuts Pyramid . What a learning curve!

With a handful of smarts and little cash on hand - I opened the Hyde Park Café. Thirteen years later, I am proud to have been a part of transforming  this once battered establishment, into a South Tampa staple.

I have grown over the years, and have learned some valuable hard  lessons along the way – but through it all, I have had the support and following of many dedicated guests. Today my partners and team mates have formed the SoHo Leisure Group and vow to continue to provide the Tampa area with extraordinary hospitality, outstanding food, world renowned music  in the most eclectic, innovative venues around.

Thank you for your continued support. It is an honor to be able to contribute to the place I call home.
