Originally from upstate New York, Goldberg began his career at Morgans Hotel Group, first at the Delano South Beach before relocating to the Royalton in New York. He joined Commune Hotels & Resorts in 2014 as Director of Operations at Thompson Hotels’ Smyth, where he supervised the multi-million dollar renovation of the public spaces and the redesign of guest rooms.   Goldberg graduated from the Culinary Institute of America in 2003 before attending Florida International University, where he earned his BA in Hotel Management.
