Why you are lovin’ Nashville right now?
Being here since undergraduate school at TSU I’ve had the opportunity to build a vibrant network and be a part of the city’s growth.  Seeing the growth and being on the front-end of Nashville becoming the new “It City” is very exciting.  I’m loving it!!
Describe Our Family Dinner in 4 words? New friends becoming family
 Why did you decide to become a host?
Nashville needs a new experience so that people don’t feel lost in the shuffle. There’s no better way than connecting like minded individuals over delicious food and networking.
Are you a Nashville native?  If so, what high school did you attend?
Nope.  Originally from Knoxville, but Nashville is home now.

Eric Holt
Marketing Professional / Communications Professor
Why you are lovin’ Nashville right now? – I am loving Nashville right now because I see the growth. Experiencing Nashville 10-15yrs ago is an entire different planet from the Nashville we have today.
Describe Our Family Dinner in 4 words? Community. Tradition. Culture. Love.
Why did you decide to become a host? My entire business (Lovenoise) was built from the Nashville community supporting. I felt contributing my time as a Host for OFD was a great way to give back to a city that has given me so much.
Are you a Nashville native?  #Yep, yep!
If so, what high school did you attend? well….ummm….I was born in Nashville…lol

Why you are lovin’ Nashville right now? It’s becoming more diverse and is evolving before our eyes.
Describe Our Family Dinner in 4 words: Love, Family, Culture, Community
Why did you decide to become a host? So many of the interactions between young professionals in Nashville are centered around professional networking and business connections especially with the increase of new residents moving from other cities. Why not bring a national movement to the city that is focused on improving the well-being of our community through creating relationships in a family atmosphere!
Are you a Nashville native? No, Memphis born and raised.
So, now that you have learned why these culture-seekers are super excited about Our Family Dinner Nashville, get your ticket and join us on Saturday, August 29, 2015.
