In 2000 he became chef de partie at chef Alain Dutournier's Café Faubourg at the Sofitel Paris le Faubourg. In 2005 he moved to Sofitel New York's French eatery, Gaby, and served as sous chef, before he was promoted to executive chef. He has also worked at the Sofitel Sydney Wentworth hotel in Australia, Hotel Sofitel Boao in China and Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit before coming to the UK to work at Sofitel St James' Brasserie Roux and the Balcon.
