ABOUT ME

As previously mentioned, I’ve worked in the local San Francisco hospitality and Concierge industry for close to 20 years and have now decided to take a stab at upstarting my own "eConcierge" business. I started—or more like stumbled—into the local tourism world as a Visitor Services Representative with the so-called “mothership” of San Francisco tourism: The San Francisco Convention & Visitor’s Bureau (now called SF Travel). From there, I went on to work as a hotel and residential Concierge at various legendary, historic and prestigious, five-star hotel and luxury high-rise residential properties such as: •The Donatello Hotel •The Sir Francis Drake Hotel •The Prescott Hotel •The St. Regis Hotel & Residences •The Palms Residences •The Infinity Towers Residences. Lastly, and for the past 11 years, I worked as the Senior Concierge at the historic Hotel Whitcomb in downtown San Francisco (as pictured on location here). Throughout the 18 years of working in the local hospitality/tourism industry, I have met some incredible people from all over the world and have had some amazing work and personal experiences which were life-changing and unforgettable. Thankfully, many of the people who I have encountered throughout my Concierge career thus far have responded in kind with commendations of praise and, as a result, I have received numerous awards and acknowledgments from the various hotel and residential properties where I’ve worked. It’s truly been an honor and my sincere pleasure to welcome and serve visitors to San Francisco and I’d like to keep doing it with your help and support.
