Asking Questions and Doing Things

About Me

Bluffton, SC –

Who am I? I’m Sarah, Amanda’s Dad. Professional writer, restaurant consultant and hospitality specialist.

I tweet, love my iTunes and like to jog before breakfast. I’m a reformed snow-shoveler who’s good with numbers and fascinated by trends. 

As a hobby, I’ve embraced new media digital platforms and enjoy writing freelance for websites, magazines, newspapers and other periodicals.

My first book will be about the journalistic transition from newsprint stained fingers of yesterday to the digital future of tomorrow. In the meantime I manage restaurants, own two businesses and share custody of my two teenage daughters and our two year old Husky/ Shepherd pup named Bruin. Needless to say, I juggle.
