Within a couple of months of Supervising and learning how to be a great operator, I was then promoted to Manager. I worked in several King’s Fish Houses over the next couple of years: Laguna Hills, Long Beach, Huntington Beach, Henderson, Mission Valley, and broadened more of my skills when I moved to King Signature Group, Lou & Mickey's. This is where I knew I wanted more for my career. I helped re-concept the Water Grill in Los Angeles, I helped at i.cugini in its final months, and I was part of the opening team of the newly re-modeled Water Grill.
I became a Senior Manager and promoted to General Manager. I had the privilege to work at Water Grill Santa Monica and spearhead a new developmental position for the company, Assistant General Manager. Currently, I am back in Water Grill - Los Angeles as the sole General Manager and looking forward to the exciting future.
There is not one sole reason why I like working for the company; there are a variety of reasons. If I had to pick just one, it's the opportunity; to learn, teach, develop a new skill, express your observations, grow, move, advance your career, meet new people, and develop bonds with guests and the crew. It's not just one thing that makes this company great, it's all of these things together that make it great.
