He then continued to move up the ranks at restaurants Pesce, Ristorante Cavour, Brennan’s, and the Houston Country Club.He joined The Houston Club in 2013 for its new location; after three successful years and numerous awards, he was asked to oversee the reopening of the newly renovated Met Club in downtown.

Serving within every capacity of the hospitality industry has led him to appreciate and understand what it takes to serve and lead in the kitchen.
