About me

I am a doer and an achiever. I believe in creating unforgettable experiences. Life is short and it is better to burn rather than to fade away.

An influential, creative and strategic executive with over nine years of expertise in luxury hospitality, innovative food & beverage, project management and high-end leisure facilities. Passionate about customer insights and
global market trends, I have a successful track record of creating meaningful guest experiences, initiating change
and bringing innovative solutions to often challenging environments. A committed coach and mentor, I take pride in developing the leaders of tomorrow.
