David’s passion for creative cooking served him well with several years working at Patti’s Place on Stuebner Airline in Houston and then twelve years at Resa’s Steakhouse on Gladebrook in Houston. In 2006 he became employed with Cardinal Catering of Alvin, TX. With Cardinal, he served as Chef Manager on several ships over the next eleven years.
