CEO and Founder of Jawfish Games


I am an adventurer. When I travel, I crave interesting people and great experiences. My earliest travel memory is of journeying to Italy at age 9 with a choir and singing mass in the Vatican. The place I'm most excited to go next is Brazil.

I would spend my perfect day in Las Vegas because it's Vegas, baby! If visiting Vegas, I would recommend staying at the Bellagio. For a night on the town, go to Marquee Nightclub at the Cosmopolitan. My most memorable moment here has been seeing my sons born, but I'll also always remember partying at Ghostbar at the top of Palms Ivory Tower after a long day of filming Celebrity Poker Showdown!

The activities that can't be missed

  1. Playing poker at the Bellagio.
  2. Seeing any of the Cirque du Soleil shows, but probably O by Cirque du Soleil if you only get to see one.
  3. Golf at Shadow Creek, easily one of the top 5 courses in the US.

The places you should definitely see

  1. The fountain show at the Bellagio.
  2. The Pirate Show in front of Treasure Island—watch from the strip!
  3. Penn and Teller at the Rio.
Tom Colicchio's craftsteak

My favorite places to eat

  1. N9NE Steak House at the Palms Casino Resort. Try the seafood platter and the Kobe steak.
  2. Comme Ça at Cosmopolitan. Get the Bouillabaisse.
  3. craftsteak at MGM Grand. Order the Kobe beef.
Vegas Indoor Skydiving

My favorite hidden gems

  1. Indoor Skydiving.
  2. I Love Sushi: A place off the strop on Eastern Avenue. Best sushi in town!
  3. Grimaldi's Pizza: Off the strip on Eastern Avenue in Henderson for coal-fired brick oven pizza.
