Newport Brass is the recognized brand for quality constructed
bathroom and kitchen products. Carrying the distinction of flawless
beauty and extended durability, our products are available in a full
range of finishes and contemporary, transitional and traditional styles.

We know people love experiences when they travel, but what
I've learned is that people are willing to seek out places where
they feel comfortable. There's a return on investment on their
time, money, health, and wellness. I'm not building places where
people go to hang out and get high. This is about the experience.

How did your background at Best Value Inn and
Vantage Hospitality inform the 160-acre, wellnessand cannabis-focused Coachill Inn Resort, set to
open in Desert Hot Springs, California in 2021?

How did you get interested in cannabis as it related
to hospitality?

I suffered a heart attack during a horrible accident and I knew
that if they put me on opioids, I was going to become an addict.
My doctor was the one who suggested cannabis. I started to see
all the age groups, demographics, and psychographics [of those
visiting Coachella Valley], and I thought if people are willing to
go on a wine tour in Napa Valley, then why not cannabis?

What can we expect from the Coachill Inn brand?

We're creating a health and wellness resort around CBD and
hemp. We'll use hemp products everywhere, from uniforms to
bed sheets and concrete. CBD will be infused into amenities
like shampoo and body lotions. The hotel doesn't sell or touch
marijuana. If you are at the hotel as a cannabis user and want to
partake in your guestroom, private balcony, or in a special wing,
that is at your discretion. My goal is to keep my room rates low
and my product quality high.

How did you find investors for the project?

The cost barrier is high. Because [marijuana] is still illegal
federally, we're not seeing a lot of public money. Most of it is
private funding. Everybody looks at it as the next gold rush,
and they want in. We established ourselves as a publicly traded
company in the beginning to show we passed all the tests.

Are you paying attention to the competition?

It's such an interesting and fascinating industry. I love that other
people are looking at it. I'm several years ahead, and I have the
hotel side supporting me. I've created something that no one else
has ever done. I probably wouldn't have even thought about it if I
didn't have the heart attack.
