After having a prosperous career as a Pastry Chef in New York, Maryland, and Washington, DC, he took a position with Disney in late 2015 and relocated to Lake Buena Vista in early 2016 to achieve his ambition of a career with Disney, first at the Yacht and Beach Club and then moving on to the Polynesian Resort.
He worked his way up to the position of Head Pastry Chef at the Polynesian Resort. After this, posts were held with Wolf Gang Puck and the Patina Group, respectively. After that, he decided to work for the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort as a cast member.Recently, he was awarded the title of Employee of the Year at Marriott, and it was announced that he would be moving on to a new role at the Swan Resort. When I last spoke to him on Sunday, May 8th, he was really looking forward to starting the new position later that week.
