My story began in a slightly different lane. I initially set out to be on the other side of media, in the PR industry that is. I attended Boston University and worked in agencies and business in the luxury lifestyle space. Among my favorite clients were always those centered around travel, tourism & hospitality. My passion for travel & hospitality turned out to be a self fulfilling prophecy, when I met my partner and married him along with our business, Clarendon Square Inn in Boston, Massachusetts. As someone who loves to travel, being at the helm of a one of a kind travel experience that so intimately connects discerning travelers to iconic destination like Boston is a major responsibility and honor. Throughout the year we welcome guests from across the globe who are celebrating life, discovering a historic city and exploring the world.
What makes me a successful hotelier is being on both sides of the table. As I said, travel is a passion and I am frequent flier. This month I will be adding number 39, 40, 41 & 42 to the list of countries I have visited. I think it is important to be a consumer of the product or service you offer. Each travel experience provides me with a different point of view, affirmation or inspiration for what I do as a hotelier. Traveling keeps my eyes open.
At Beverly Hills Lifestyle Magazine the same is true. My understanding of media from the public relations side helps me approach the magazine as a stronger and more well rounded gatekeeper. Being Executive Editor for BHL, is a special honor for me. I started with BHL during the 10th Anniversary Year, as a travel editor and have shared some unique & memorable moments with all of you. While I will continue to bring you travel stories and behind the scenes looks at some of the world’s most prestigious hotels, I am thrilled to take this next step with the beautiful publication that Mark & Kimi conceived 12 years ago. It is a privilege to serve as Executive Editor and I look forward to continuing the conversation with you, and collaborating with our fabulous partners & contributors. Thank you for joining me on this journey.
