Early on he moved to Boston, Massachusetts to work in his father's successful restaurant, an experience that allowed him to learn all the elements that make a for a fine dining experience.
In order to receive high quality training and hone his palate, the young chef returned to Thailand and enrolled in Suan Dusit International Culinary school where, after rigorous training, he received his certification as a Thai chef.
Since then, he has opened several successful business throughout the east coast and the south. His ambition to open Thip Thai Cuisine was to immerse the people of Columbia in true, authentic Thai cooking.
