About me

After beginning my career in hospitality as an executive chef, I have gained international experience leading both Food and Beverage as well as hotel-wide operations throughout Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East.
Throughout these roles, I have earned a reputation for recruiting and developing top-performing teams devoted to excellence in quality and customer service and who manage flawless events for world leaders and VIP guests.
In my work managing all areas of hotel operations, I work to identify ways to streamline processes to deliver significant cost reductions and implement innovative amenities and promotions that increase occupancy and average room rates. I have also overseen large-scale renovation projects upgrading more than 100 rooms, multi-floor restaurants, and rooftop areas.
In addition to my hands-on experience in hospitality and restaurant management, I hold a Master of Science in Business Management and a Master of Business Administration, both from Canterbury University in London. I am also currently working toward a Master of Hospitality Administration from Cornell University in the U.S., expected in 2019.
Furthermore, I’m an accredited and international award-winning Master Chef and will be completing the General Management of Hospitality program through Cornell.
My Areas of Expertise Include:
Budgeting & Financial Management | Renovation Oversight | Front & Back of House Team Training & Development | Reservation Growth | Operations Management | Chef Experience | Food & Beverage Leadership | Cost Containment | Excellent Customer Service | Strategic Planning | Hospitality Management

    This is a very busy 700-room property with a $159M budget and three on-site restaurants, six meeting venues, and seating for 3,000 in the grand ballroom.

When completed, the three-floor overhaul will include a fine dining site, self-serve buffet, and a Pan Asian-themed floor. ► Completing the renovation of 128 rooms over four floors on time and within budget.
