As a newbie to the Vegas pool scene and to our resort, we wanted to get to know him more so we caught up with him poolside to talk academics and why he loves this city.

Vegas native…No. I’m originally from Missouri. I moved to Vegas in December because my older brother lives here.

What I you love about Las Vegas is…The weather. I love being outside and Vegas has the perfect weather.

When I’m not working, I’m…Going to school. Right now, I’m attending UNLV and getting my Master’s in healthcare administration. I have my undergraduate in business management and I’m hoping to combine both and eventually become a director at a hospital. 

When I’m not at school or working, I like working out and competing in body building shows. Last August I won the St. Louis Gateway Naturals competition placing in the Collegiate and Novice categories.

Something interesting about me is…I broke my neck while playing football in college. I played safety at Southeast Missouri State University and during a game I ended up suffering a pretty major neck injury. I had to have my spine fused and I was in a neck brace for two and half months. The recovering was really hard, but I thankfully I made a full recovery. 

The Vegas pool scene is….fun. I love working at DayDream and love working at the M. The environment that we’re creating is one that is very personal and local-oriented. In fact, one of the things that attracted me to the M and to DayDream specifically was how team-focused it is. It’s a lot of fun coming to work every day.

Favorite drink…Vodka water with a lime

People should visit DayDream because….we’re a service-oriented dayclub that always has locals in mind. We want our guests to come back again and again because of the service, the experience, and the people they meet while they’re here.
