In March of 2000, Christopher entered into the private service working for a family foundation in Westchester, NY. He started in the kitchens as a line cook and over the next 7-years, he ascended to over see catering, foodservice, culinary education, and operations for the non-profit. He has built an impressive reputation as an organizer, manager, and hands-on project coordinator. After leaving the family foundation, Christopher traveled the world as a private chef before landing in Greenwich, CT where he took a role in helping a family create a permaculture homestead. He quickly proved his value and was rewarded with more responsibility. Within a year he took on the role of Estate Manager which he kept for the next three years. In 2014, Christopher moved to San Francisco, CA after losing a bet to his identical twin brother Timothy (ask him about it) and to start Bespoke Private Service.
