Following college, Joey took on the world of private restaurants from working in casual environments to high end fine dining where he continued to fine tune his skills, and even earned his sommelier certification from the Court of Masters. Most recently, Joey worked for the Colorado Golf Club in Parker, Colorado where he utilized his talents to reinvent the food and beverage programs while growing and executing a lively event calendar that spurred an expanding sense of community.
