Summary

Right now my goal is to graduate from The School of Hospitality Business at Michigan State University with flying colors. Then I'd like to get a career in the hospitality industry and eventually open up my own bar/restaurant. I want to work for a business that knows money is always a factor but cares more about the idea of giving the customers an experience they will remember.
