Being an elevator operator

Ruben’s Elevator from Dress Code on Vimeo.

75-year-old Ruben Pardo is the oldest elevator operator in Los Angeles. For six days a week for the past 40 years, he has welcomed people to 5514 Wilshire Boulevard, taking them up and down the beautiful old building. With a warm smile and insight about the simple joys of life, Ruben offers much more than just an elevator ride. Still smiling on the job, Ruben finds it powerful that, “we are so many people; yet none of us have the same situation.” As long as we can think positive and always have something to look forward to, the world holds many pleasures and surprises.
