With over 15 years of hospitality experience and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Hotel, Restaurant, and Tourism Management from UW-Stout, I’ve managed operations small and large all over the US and have a keen eye and expertise specifically in the vacation rental industry.  
I currently live in Tampa, FL with my wife Heather where I’m a licensed Florida REALTOR and we manage the finest vacation rental properties on or near the gulf coast beaches. I also own and operate Elite Lake Rentals, managing homes on or near the lake in the Lake Geneva, WI area. Prior to moving to Tampa in 2018, I lived in Destin, FL and worked as General Manager for Southern Vacations overseeing the management of 300+ properties, I was Director of Operations for Wyndham Vacation Rentals in Panama City Beach managing housekeeping and maintenance for 350+ properties, and was also the Director of Business Development for Seascape Resort responsible for the rental property growth plan of 200+ onsite condos.
Whether you are a guest visiting Florida’s Gulf Coast for the first time, or a beach area homeowner looking for personalized, detail oriented vacation rental management, we will provide you with a personal, authentic experience.
