Hammer and Plate

I started Hammer and Plate Consulting 2 years ago. For the past 30 years, I have been dedicated to the hospitality industry. My work focuses on developments that concentrate on adaptive reuse that integrate food and beverage establishments. At the core of my scope, I identify, assess, and engage developers, restaurant owners, designers, and operators in order to establish the best possible outcome for a project, large or small.
