After receiving rigorous academic training in culinary techniques, he began his career working with some of the most outstanding French Michelin-starred chefs, including Eric Briffard, Alain Senderens, Eric Fréchon and Frédéric Robert.

Whilst learning the fundamentals of fine cooking from Chef Eric Briffard at the Elysées du Vernet, he was inspired by the top-quality, highly creative cuisine served at Palace de la Madeleine under the reins of Chef Alain Senderens. Later with Chef Eric Fréchon’s team, where his skills were further enhanced, he participated in the tremendous challenge of earning a third Michelin star at Le Bristol Paris. Most recently, he worked alongside Chef Frédéric Robert at the Grande Cascade where he took charge of banquet menus and restaurant development, as well as learnt about management and essentials of profitability.
