I am currently working at Serge et le phoque, the mandrake hotel in a position of Executive Sous Chef.

Previously I was in the 101 restaurant part of the Park Tower hotel Knightsbridge as Exec. Sous Chef taking of all the outlets.

I am a dynamic and flexible person who works well in a team and equally as well as an individual. I am always eager to learn more and I am capable of teaching others too.

In Mallorca I attended the prestigious Escuela de Hosteleria de las Islas Baleares. Since then I have
been worked for 10 years between Barcelona, Scotland and England. I have decided the time has
come take the next step in my career and move further afield.

I have always been interested in languages and foreign cultures, which is the main reason I move
across this countries. I have previously worked in Scotland at Glen Eagles, where I mixed with people from all over the world. After I work in Barcelona with the objective of see how is a Michelin star, Mallorca and England.
During all this time I worked in all the sections of the kitchen, gardemangier, entremetier, sauce,
fish, meat and pastry, starting with classics and using the last technology and techniques.
I am working like a Executive sous chef in the restaurant One One because I was really interesting in work in a proper fish and seafood restaurant mixing with a French style, and for that reason I move to this place. And as well waiting to have a Michelin star in this restaurant.

Also In the meantime I have been working with a project with a wine cellar in Spain doing tasting
menu with their wines, you can see one on the nights in the next link,
