Great Food, I believe it should be a proper noun, is a great passion of mine. Over the last 10 years, I have gained an appreciation for the unique Tampa Bay area local cuisine, craft beer and fine wine available in town. While I love traveling to places like New York, Philadelphia, Chicago and out west, I really enjoy the Tampa food scene just as much, if not more, than the cuisines I have tasted abroad. This passion of mine is what keeps me doing what I do at Tampa Bay Food Trucks, hoping to introduce you to the best local cuisine, whether it be the best burger, BBQ or Mahi tacos, I have tried them all. Wondering how to find me in the crowd? Every now and then you will see me lurking around in the crowd and asking people if I can take photos of their food or better yet, have a bite to try something new.

I am a huge food truck fan, which is why I got involved with Tampa Bay Food Trucks in the first place. My background is in social sports and event management, with a sprinkle of culinary knowledge. My favorite time of the year is the Super Bowl and I volunteer every year at the Taste of the NFL and Taste of Derby charity fundraisers, hoping to raise money for food banks across the country. Wondering how to find me in the crowd? I am the guy reviewing a menu extensively with a big, excited smile on my face.

It’s not a stretch to believe my mantra, “eat well and travel often” was written about a food truck. At Tampa Bay Food Trucks, my goal is to blend my love of great food and cool venues with my advertising background to spread the word about where to find the area’s food trucks, and what to try. As a Tampa native, I gain satisfaction from connecting people with our city’s best culinary experiences. Wondering how to find me in the crowd? I’ll be the one indecisively trying to figure out which truck to try next, and Instagramming photos of all my food.

Although I was born in a small farm town in Ohio I have become a true city girl through and through. I enjoy everything Tampa has to offer, from great events and concerts to the wide variety of restaurants and breweries. Although the biggest chunk of my career has involved selling insurance, I am very excited to be on the Tampa Bay Food Trucks team and working within an industry I am so passionate about.  Wondering how to find me in the crowd? I will be the one high-fiving you because you just experienced how awesome food truck cuisine is!

I am serving as Tampa Bay Food Truck's Food Truck Enthusiast (aka Food Truck Lover Extraordinaire)! I've been on the streets for several years as a food truck entrepreneur and owner, and am now living the dream of connecting great people with amazing food truck experiences. If you can imagine it, we can do it! My background has been in small business and corporate retail food and food service segment sales, business management and entrepreneurship.

You can find me hugging my Food Truck friends, congratulating them on delivering incredible food and service and talking to you about how we can provide the highest quality local food to delight your senses. When I get excited look out - my passion will be very noticeable! I have been blessed in my adventures to travel the world and experienced many wonderful cuisines along the way. I'm happy to say a lot of those cuisines are represented right here in Tampa's food truck scene.

In May 2016, I graduated from the University of Central Florida in Orlando. Other than my time in Orlando, I have lived in Tampa my entire life. During my time at UCF, I worked on a food truck part-time while going to school full-time for my B.S. in Marketing. Upon graduating and moving back home, I was looking to highlight my food truck experience and jumped on an opportunity to join the Tampa Bay Food Trucks team in a professional setting - and in the city that I call home. I help with keeping our website updated as well as collecting the necessary insurance information from our many trucks for our many events! In my spare time you’ll find me on the golf course or cheering on my Bucs and Lightning!
