After a couple years he found himself in Kansas city and took his first job cooking at a little joint called Classic Cup. The cooking bug got him and the next thing he new he moved back to New England to work under Chef Ken Oringer & Chef Chris Schlesinger for a number of years. The next chapter for him was opening his own place Perdix JP where he he won Best of Boston for 2 years as Best Neighborhood Restaurant. He moved Perdix to the South End for another 3 years where he was featured in Bon Apetit Magazine but with the birth of his child he decided to take a break from the crazy demand of being a chef owner. He then entered a whirl wind of restaurant openings & rebrands as Executive Chef: Bouchee, Atlantic Fish Company, Darryl’s Corner Bar & Jerry Remmys.
