Volunteering at Torrance Memorial Hospital lead to a job as unit secretary. He chose Cal Poly SLO for ME then switched to Chemistry. He completed the culinary course at LA Trade Tech and had the good fortune to begin his career with Robert Bell (Chez Melange, RB) who gave him a great foundation. From there he worked in restaurants and catering companies in the South Bay and DTLA. He found the garden and animals a peaceful retreat. Connecting with family and friends brought him joy.
