My Background in the Hospitality industry spans decades and various capacities. As a teenager, I was a busboy at a very popular Peruvian restaurant in Jackson Heights Queens, NY. Then I went to work at The Ritz Carlton Hotel on Central Park South in the room-service department. Later on, I made Miami my new home and accepted a position as the night auditor at the Sheraton Hotel. Although the “graveyard shift” was a difficult transition, I learned a lot by crunching the daily numbers from the various outlets of the property. I also learned a lot while marketing numerous hotels, and resorts in my real estate career. Understanding how to underwrite hotel assets, individual market conditions and uncovering the upside potential is what gets my juices pumping!.
I have always enjoyed music, dancing, food and an appreciation for service and a good time. At a very young age, I was often in most of the legendary clubs mainly in NYC and Miami including The Garage, Studio54, The fun house, palladium, 1018, Copacabana, etc. So, all that time on the dance floor understanding what it takes to move a crowd and have them coming back is paying off.
