I started out as the President of the Texas Chapter and that transitioned into the Central Regional President. As the new president of the club, I plan on using my skillset and knowledge of what it takes to grow the club efficiently. As a SOTL I was introduced to the cigar community by one of my uncles who were in the military. When he completed his duty he always had a cigar with him. As I became older, an ex-boyfriend was my first personal encounter with cigars. The first cigar he brought me was a Rocky Patel Decade 10th Anniversary. The taste, smell, and interest kept me wanting more. Now, 7yrs later, the knowledge I have acquired and the continued interest and love for cigars have introduced me to an awesome community. Not really having a favorite cigar, someone once told me that my favorite cigar is the next one I pick up until it proves me wrong. Becoming an Ashhole member over a year ago, I would have never thought that I would be in these exciting positions. Recruited by a fellow member then going from the Vice President of the Texas Chapter to the President's position has definitely been a journey. Now as a member of the board, I hope to add to the continued success of this amazing family and put a footprint in the Midwest Region.
Husband, father of 2, avid cigar smoker for 25 years. I enjoy relaxing either by myself or with others while enjoying a good cigar. I'm a firm believer in smoking what you like. I have smoked some very expensive cigars to not so expensive. I am a big Drew Estate fan, Kuba Maduro my favorite, but like many DE Cigars as well as most recently the Micallef brand. I am part of Drew Diplomat and a Micallef Ambassador. I was introduced to cigars by a former co-worker many years ago and it was an A&C Grenadier of all things. I tried many brands over the years, but I like my DE's and Micallef's. I was a member of some other clubs but gave all those up when I was honored with being named President of the new California Chapter of the Ash Hole Cigar Club in March 2019 (holy crap over a year now!!)Most recently Honored again as well as humbled to be named to the board and named West Regional President, and now the Vice President of the club. I have seen this club grow so much in the last 15 months and look forward to continuing to help it grow.
Born and raised in Buffalo, NY. Was a chef for 30 years. Found my love for cigars 2 years ago. Fell in love with them and jumped in headfirst. I love boutique brands and hard-to-find rare cigars. I work at a cigar lounge and couldn't possibly be happier with my career change. My wife and I have 6 kids total. 1 boy and 5 girls. We're a very active family and all our kids are musically inclined and honor roll students and they all participate in local charity drives and fundraisers. I joined Ashhole Cigar Club in July of last year and found my home. I patched into NY and a few months after then became a captain in NY and then President of New England. Shortly after I was appointed northern east coast president and most recently promoted to the East Coast Regional President. I am an Ashhole for life!
Born and raised in Oklahoma. Mother of 2 children. I have been a cigar smoker on and off for 10 years. Last 4 years I became more interested in the cigar culture. I became more interested in the details of the cigar inside and out to the point that I would look up every cigar I smoked. Even when I go to the cigar shop I would read about it before purchasing. It was so bad my friend told me I was a cigar encyclopedia lol. In 2020 I was introduced to Ash Hole Cigar Club by a Texas Chapter member who introduced me to the Texas Chapter President and region President at the time. She and I discuss opening a chapter in Oklahoma so in September 202 I became president and started the Oklahoma Chapter. In 2021 I became the Vice President of the Midwest Region. Now in 2022, I Am the President of the Midwest Region. Since being a part of Ash Hole Cigar Club I have met some amazing people within our club and within the cigar culture. This is one of the many things I love about this cigar culture is meeting people from all walks of life and realizing just a CIGAR brings us together.
