The concept of “Hospitality” or providing a memorable experience for guests was shaped early in my life in New York City and Miami. A busy fine dinning Peruvian restaurant in Jackson Heights, Queens was my first job. Folding napkins and pouring water became my thing at fifteen years old.
A couple years later The Ritz Carlton Hotel hired me to work with the Food & Beverage team in Manhattan. Providing superior customer service to all guests all the time is the essence of hospitality. When I wasn’t working the night-shift at the hotel, I could be found on legendary dancefloors like Studio54, The Funhouse and The Copacabana.
