My Native AdVantage

What do you do best?:

I believe that in the concierge profession, the ability to take in and process the information a guest is giving you, instinctively feel what is appropriate for any given guest and put that knowledge into the recommendations you are giving, makes for the best possible experience.

What makes you the best?:

This year I was voted Chief Concierge of the Year and won the Silver Plume Award by the New York City Association of Hotel Concierges.  I am also a member of Les Clefs d’Or, the international organization of concierges and the most prestigious honor one can receive in this career.  Sensitivity to a guest’s needs, knowledge of the various venues available and a sense of service are key ingredients.

What are your aspirations? (Personal and Business):

Personal: To continue my various musical projects and see them come to fruition.  To always have a creative project.

Business: Maintaining the highest standards of my staff at my concierge desk.

Motto?:

“In Service Through Friendship” (Les Clefs d’Or)

Favorite People/Role Models?:

Artists, performers, writers.

Favorite Places/Destinations?:

Theater, restaurants.

Favorite Products/Objects?:

Technological tools that enhance my work.

Current Passions?:

Lyric writing, food, theater.
