Joey Manley

Life in musical theater has taken me all over the country, and the world of hospitality has landed me in a city where the arts and culture are abundant, and the food and wine are orchestrated by some of the best in the industry.

As an event, hospitality, and sales professional, I have over a decade of experience spanning every field from full service upscale dining, private social events, catering, remote military tactical training (contract), and disaster relief. I have worked in every position from host to manager, set up to tear down, sales to lead operations, event planning, contract negotiation, and execution. Moreover, LOVE the world of detailed and logistics.

I love helping people experience food in a new and interesting way. I've lived in Seattle for the past 17 years, and originally hail from the town that South Park is based on, living in the Denver area for most of my life.  I have a marketing and data analytics background yet food, travel, and people are my passion. I can make magic happen when they all come together.
