Welcome to my blog!
I will use this time and space to share my stories and knowledge on the Gaming and Special Event industry!
I will try to make my entries interesting, fun, and informative. It is my goal that you will read my comments and share your thoughts and suggestions to make it a blog that people will want to return to time and again!
I am the founder and owner of Ace Casino Equipment. ACE is a Casino Theme Company based in sunny Tucson, Arizona. We are celebrating our 25th year in business this year. Over the years we have evolved to include entertainment and décor options for our clients. I am proud of what has been accomplished over the past quarter century and look forward to what lies ahead.
People often ask me what made me get into this business of Special Events and Theme Parties. So, to save you the trouble of asking…
I grew up with games of chance and gambling is in my blood.
I was 6 years old the first time my mom took me to the race track to see the horse races. I remember playing penny ante poker with my family when I could barely reach the kitchen table.
As soon as I turned 21, I made my way to Las Vegas to see the bright lights and treasures to be won.
When I started working I was given the opportunity to work in the tourism industry in Tucson. I was fortunate to get in at the beginning of a booming industry. Tourism was just taking off and building was underway to make Tucson a tourist and convention destination. As visitors flocked to Tucson, there became a need for dependable, knowledgeable suppliers and I fancied myself as one of those suppliers. I married my love for gambling and my love for tourism and found a business was to be born!
With little more than a credit card, blind ambition, and a desire to make a better life for myself, I commenced to building my business. I am a firm believer in being in the right place at the right time and “Lady Luck” was smiling on me in the early stages.
Now, here we are, 25 years later and we are going strong! Don’t get me wrong. There have been some ups and downs along the way. But I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. I love what I do for a living and that is half the battle, I believe. Find something you really like and if you are good at it, you will succeed!
