After graduating from High School, he enrolled in Houston Tillotson University in Austin Texas. After receiving a B.A. in Hotel Restaurant Management, he moved to Atlanta Georgia. He immediately enrolled in the Art Institute of Atlanta. After receiving a Culinary Arts Degree, the next 5 years he worked in some of Atlanta’s most exquisite hotels and restaurants.
