Chef John’s passion for culinary arts began in his childhood where he learned how to make sausage, sauerkraut, pierogi, and canned fruits and vegetables with his family. He pursued an apprenticeship with the ACF, worked in various resort hotels and catering for the Summer Olympics in LA before advancing his career in Cape Cod and northern California. He managed the test kitchen for the F&B team at Marriott International Head Quarters in Bethesda MD and finally landed with Troon, first at Bayside now at Bear Trap Dunes.
