Denziel Perkins

Restaurant Manager - Miami

Denziel's journey began with a passion for automotive, leading him to pursue a career in the field during his early years. However, it was his ascent through the ranks of the hospitality industry, starting as a Busser/Host and culminating as a Bar/Restaurant Manager while attending college, that truly captured his heart. Graduating from the University of Central Missouri with a management degree, he embarked on a transformative journey.

Shortly after graduation, Denziel made a pivotal move across the country to Las Vegas, where he was introduced to the world of fine dining. There, he immersed himself in the industry, eventually assuming the role of a restaurant manager.

Presently, Denziel dedicates his days to overseeing his city's police, fire, and municipal fleet vehicles, while his evenings are filled with the vibrant offerings of KYU. Outside of work, he cherishes moments with his beloved German Shepherd, Kali, indulges in travel adventures, and embraces the exhilarating world of motorcycles.
