„Never Let them See you Panic “

About me

I’m a country boy, I grew up on a farm in Saint Mary Jamaica with my mother, father. In 1985, my parents when to America in search of a better life for our family. My grandmother taught me to eat and cook. It was there I fell in love with food—fresh herbs, vegetables, fruits and all the different spices from my country. I love the warmth of our local Jamaican flavours that are in the street from all the different food vendors.

Since my departure from Jamaica, I’ve lived, trained, and cooked all over New York City. I have live in New York City for over 18 years before I started to travel and work. I have work in some of the best restaurants in NYC, and learned so much from some superstar chefs and Restaurateur.
Chef Nobu gave me the greatest opportunity to open two location of Nobu restaurant, Moscow, Budapest, because of this opportunity; I have worked in London, Moscow, and Budapest, Ukraine and Dubai
Wherever I go, I always want to cook both globally and locally. My background in cooking started off with French and Asian cuisines. I started my career as a waiter then when to culinary school to study the art of cooking. My first trip into the real world of cooking was working for Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. That’s where my love for fusion cooking started, working for Chef Jean-Georges remains one of my most influential culinary experiences, and I’ve since adopted is cooking style and bold flavours to my cooking repertoire. Everything I cook has to have a flavour inside of it.
