- Guinness Storehouse chef de partie
- Harry’s Mediterranean Café, Dawson Street Sous Chef
- Ely CHQ (IFSC) as sous chef under executive chef Ryan Stringer
- Was moved to Ely HQ (Hanover Quay) as head chef, overseeing the transition from fine dining to gastro pub. The Grand Canal Theatre opened, tripling the business overnight.
I then joined McGettigans Cookhouse and Bar in July 2013 as Head Chef and here, my aim was to create a fun, inviting and relaxed place to eat where the menu is delicious and supporting home-grown produce and showcasing the best of local ingredients is at the heart of what we do.
And the rest as they say… is history.
