About Me

I am a professional butler and estate manager with proficiencies of the highest standards. Throughout my  thirty-year career in service to some of the world’s most discerning families, I have cultivated the professionalism, discretion, and precision essential to performing a wide range of specialized functions.

 

Being in service for my first employer, Queen Elizabeth II, included work at many of the state and private residences of the British Royal family, as well as on the Royal yacht HMY Britannia, where I was responsible for the domestic care of a wide range of family members, dignitaries, and guests. My first-hand perspective into the complexities of running a high-performance household has led me to continue my career as the leader and organizing force behind the households of a diplomat, an Arab Sheik, and luminaries of the entertainment industry.

 

My last full-time service position was that of butler to Mrs. Brooke Astor.  Since then, I have provided organizational services in optimizing the staffs of high-net-worth households in the United States and Europe, as well as teach an estate management course at the Culinary Institute in New York.
