Jordan would visit his dad every summer and on school breaks, most of it it in the kitchens were his father worked. Because of this early immersion into the culinary world, Jordan passion for cooking flourished, as he worked every aspect of the kitchen ranging from dishwashing to pizza making and pastries to pantries.
Starting at age 10, Jordan would begin his gastronomic vocation in some of the best kitchens in Toronto, Canada. With frequent summer visits and internships at North 44, Rosewater Supper Club, and Flow Restaurant and Lounge; Jordan would work every imaginable position and station by the time he turned 16.

With his slogan: “Fully catered dinner parties in under 4 hours, including cleanup!” he took the beach community by storm working as a personal chef from the ages of 15-18.

After a stage at Jean Georges in NYC, he trained at Wolfgang Puck’s flagship restaurant, Spago, in Beverly Hills. Because of these two jobs, his resume was built and ready to tackle his greatest challenge yet, training at The French Laundry in Yountville, CA under Thomas Keller.
