In 1990 he was hired as a pastry chef by the Fairmont Hotel in Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada. Two years later, he returned to his home in Austria for a few months, before joining the Four Seasons Hotel group in Toronto in 1993.
In 1997, the Great Chefs television team caught up with him at the Four Seasons Resort on the island of Nevis, where he was just appointed Executive Pastry Chef, taping him for their Great Chefs of the Caribbean series on the Discovery Channel.
A year later, following a major hurricane, Four Seasons moved him to Atlanta, Santa Barbara, and Barbados. In 2004, he joined the Ritz-Carlton in Dola, Qatar; Jumeirah Hotel & Emirates Palace in Dubai (2007-2012); and then joined the Solaire Resort & Casino Group, first in Manila, Philippines and in 2015 back to Dubai.
