It has been my dream of serving in the field of hospitality and tourism. Never regretted over the choice I made, as I have enjoyed every moment of my life. While I was in the industry, I have had the honor to serve some of the prominent dignitaries and social figures of the world.

The most rewarding time has been when I embarked on the journey in the field of hospitality education about 15 years ago. It provided me an opportunity to give to the youth what I acquired from some of the finest hoteliers of my times during my over two decade service in the industry.

Hospitality and Tourism has gone through a huge change in the past few years with lot of emphasis on technology. Even when recession was ruling the world the hospitality and Tourism sector experienced growth which was mentioned by U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics 2006-07.
