He began his journey as a dishwasher in a Korean kitchen; with only a dream & a raw passion for the art he began to climb the ranks from dishwasher to prep cook, then assistant chef. As he grew as a chef, so did his love for the art, his passion for the kitchen blossomed into a deep appreciation for fine dining.
