Skills & Education

Difficult task to explore our own skills with absolute candor....

It is impossible to separate my personal believes – my behavior – from the values and principles that I implement, protect and enhance in my working environment.

 

It is my pledge to commit to work with leadership and all my technical abilities to obtain the best possible results in Financial, Quality, Service and Product – regardless of what executive position I have.

 

My demeanor is always based in Truth and mutual Respect to ALL persons I deal with - colleagues, guest, suppliers, authorities and to my employer!

"If it's not Right, don't do it;

If it's not True, don't say it.

Simple!"

EDUCATION

My former training in Architecture and Visual Arts has been a tremendous help for my Hospitality Career. Particularly, during my pre-opening jobs and consulting services advicing owners and architects to design hospitality facilities with a clear understanding of the mechanics during the operation - when Quality of Design and Equipment shows.....

For instance, easy access to every corner of the building - either for cleaning or maintenance - could be a real challenge if the Design was not realistic ...
