If it’s not a “hell yeah” then it’s not worth doing.When you were a kid, you wanted to be… A waiter.

Stepping away from events, even going to the cinema I am constantly analysing the customer service, the food offering, the seating - every little detail.And the easiest? – Getting excited about an upcoming project.
