that my life

was a vast glowing empty page

and I could do anything

I wanted.”

The Experiment

A quest to discover and unravel the double helix of hospitality. An epicurean adventure, studying a global menu of approaches to the industry, connecting with an eclectic spectrum of players sharing their unvarnished, real-life insights, and dishing out a street-savvy education.

A somewhat indulgent, often messy, but always down-to-earth, firsthand exploration of what truly defines and expresses the spirit of hospitality. So, mix up a cocktail, and join in the experiment. It might not be overly scholastic, but it won’t be boring.

About Me

Right out of the gates, I was hooked! I knew at an early age that I was destined to be a hospitality ‘Lifer’.

While my friends had aspirations of being firemen, doctors, or cowboys (I tried the rodeo thing but that is a whole other chapter in a completely different book), I wanted to be the star in a beer commercial.

A few decades later, here I am living out a Walter Mitty existence – Consultant, Coach, Adventurer, and Wanderluster.

Team Talbot

When your little brother is your business partner, co-worker, late-night therapist, and the ultimate wingman! My favorite go-to badass when it comes to noodling menu creations, talking shop, commandeering kitchens, and crushing the occasional box of gas station cabernet.
