We love our talented team here at HostCo. Meet our Functions Manager, Daniel.
My role at HostCo
A little bit about me
I’m a Queensland kid (Maroons always!) and grew up on the beach. The water is a fair bit cooler down here but it’s worth it for the great waves! I also enjoy throwing a BBQ now and then – so please let me know if you want an invite to the next Hostco beach bbq! Other than that, I enjoy restaurant hopping around Sydney, and I am an avid novel reader and gamer.
Experience in the hospitality/events industry
At around 21 I caught the train to Blackwater in North Western QLD to get into the coal mines, where I got a bar job in a tavern to get by while waiting for my proper mining licenses & tickets. Here I caught the hospitality bug and the rest is history! I have gone from managing bars, to fine dining restaurants, and then went into hotels which brought me to the events side of things which I love. I have thrown some parties for some pretty cool people such as Prince, The Foo Fighters, several Universal movie talents and Tony Abbott.
What do I love the most about my job?
There is nothing like the satisfaction of being part of the team that is instrumental in making someone’s special day perfect.
My menu pick
“Grainge” beef carpaccio, parmesan custard, capers, French shallots, beetroot, lime and truffle dressing.
