Title: General Manager, The Cape, a Thompson Hotel
Kids: Paola 27, and Lorena 26
City you live in: Cabo San Lucas
A typical day in my life includes… Morning bike ride, preparing my day with coffee before anyone arrives to the office.
I was born… in Mexico City, and left the city when I was 21, that’s where my adventure in the tourism industry started.
My favorite thing about Los Cabos is… Nature, the contrast of the semi-arid tropical landscape, and the deep blue color of the Sea of Cortes. Lots of different activities, land or sea.
I’m listening to… Eumir Deodato, he was advanced in his time. I also enjoy Phill Collins, Seal, Mana, Alejandro Fernandez, classic music, all depends on the mood
My family… has been very supportive at all times, and I feel very proud of my two successful daughters, they have made their way up, they are one of a kind.
I take my coffee… early in the morning preparing my day at work, or after a good bike ride.
If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be… my wife, we both enjoy good food and wine, and of course a great conversation.
One thing I cannot live without… my dogs and my bikes.
When I was younger, I wanted to be… hotelier, since I was 12 or so.
I’m inspired by… Jean Berthelot, great hotelier.
The one person who motivates me is… I have learned to be self-motivated, I am responsible of my mood, and I am the only one that can create great moments and enjoy life, taking the best of each moment.
If I could change anything in the world, it would be… education. Education builds a better understanding of our problems and provides alternatives to improve our status quo.
The perfect day would be… Today.
I unwind from a long day by… a glass of good wine.
My first job was… in a butcher store when I was 7.
My favorite escape… Riding my bike.
My life… has been filled with lots of blessings, I am very fortunate and I thank God for his kindness.
I’m currently working on… what could be the crown of my professional career, participating in the opening of the first Thompson Hotel in Mexico. Working for Commune Hotels is the reward of all the effort invested during my path in the hotel industry.
Always… try to be a better person, you never stop learning from others. Be humble
Never… say never.
Favorite Quote… If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to a person or an object – Albert Einstein
Biggest Dream… be present in a Tour de France and ride some of the routes pros ride.
My Pet Peeve(s)… lack of respect to humans, nature and animals.
