As a native Angelino, my journey as a Concierge began in 2012 at the age of twenty at the happiest place on earth, Disneyland. Having honed my skills with leading hospitality companies such as Disney, Langham Hospitality Group, Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts, & Hyatt, I navigated the corridors of Southern California’s luxury hospitality scene, earning my stripes as a dedicated concierge. I’ve had the privilege of being welcomed into several local concierge associations in Orange County, San Diego, and my home, Los Angeles. I’ve always possessed a passion for leadership and community service which has recently led me to the opportunity and privilege to serve as President for the Los Angeles Concierge Association. In the summer of 2021, I proudly received my diploma in hotel operations from The International School of Hospitality in Las Vegas, Nevada. The pinnacle of my career came, however, in December 2022, when I was honored to become a member of Les Clefs d'Or USA. I am proud to be Chef Concierge at the iconic Sunset Marquis Hotel in West Hollywood, California, where I am dedicated to inspiring the next generation in the art of being a hotel concierge.
