Born on the north side of Chicago and raised in Colorado, Mel started his career in hospitality at a very young age. Working alongside his family in their Colorado Springs restaurant, Mel was not only being groomed for the hospitality business, but for people business as well. His experience and education is extensive and understands the individual and collective needs of others. Mel's hospitality career has taken him from Denver, to Southern California, to Washington D.C., and finally Naples where he currently resides. Mel's collective experience in hospitality and working with others has provided him a natural transition into real estate.
