I am a hotel development professional representing Choice brands in various capacities throughout Colorado, Hawaii, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, Utah, Wyoming, and Canada. While I focus primarily on new construction deals, I can also provide help for existing hotels to find a better franchise flag.

Specialties: I have spent many years in hotel development and can assist with site selection as well as the financing, construction, and architectural contacts necessary to get deals done.
