Willing to relocate anywhere for the right position

I was born and raised Catholic in Guadalajara, Mexico, I come from a typical middle class family in which hard work, love, loyalty and a humble style of living was our guideline. My parents were the best a child could ask for, my mother a beautiful lady who made her living as a hair stylist and my father a true gentleman who worked as an industrial engineer. A good balance between hard work and having fun has always been a formula for living I learned from my family.

I am bi-lingual, speaking both English and Spanish, and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Business and Administration from the Universidad de Guadalajara in 1994. I have collected experiences and harvested high achievements while working in restaurants, private clubs hotels and private homes. I have also developed an honor based and hands-on style of service, one that shows I am part of the team. I am a centered and open-minded individual who truly believes in coexisting with tolerance.

Throughout my career I have received formal training in cooking techniques and I also have extensive experience in event coordination, skills that come in handy when putting together all kinds of entertaining events. As a restaurant manager, a position I held for 10 years, I have developed different projects for the Four Seasons Resort, Hard Rock Café and the Sedona Seven Canyons private Gold Club. As a Certified Household Manager, I provide an elegant, genuine and honest style of service in which my devotion to quality and observation of detail reflects in everything I do.
