What Do you do?
Entertainment & Culture Marketing for the Standard Hotels. I focus on fostering cultural events and parties at all of our hotels (LA, NYC, MIA) by creating memorable experiences that reflect our culture. But mainly I just try and charm the pants off everyone…And I occasionally DJ for fun.
Do you have a favorite hotel in the world?
The Chateau Marmont. I also love the Explora Hotel in Patagonia. It's so beautiful, chic and adventure-focused.
Why the hotel business?
It's the perfect fusion of business and pleasure.
Hotel anecdote you'd like to share?
Jumping into the bay after a mud bath completely naked at Standard Miami. I've never felt so free.
Biggest change you've seen in the industry?
The integration of technology. While it hasn't done away with personalized customer service, it has streamlined the guest experience.
I think Anthony Bourdain’s new show “The Layover” sums it up.
Favorite mini bar item or hotel amenity?
Late night/early morning room service. And a good bath to soak in.
