Tre’s culinary career began at the age of 17, working at several fast food restaurants. He quickly worked his way up the ladder, and his determination to explore the culinary world led him to his first foray into fine dining at Toscana. From there, he made his way to Abacus, which has been heralded as one of the best restaurants in Dallas. He was nominated as the James Beard Foundation’s “Rising Star Chef” for two consecutive years and was named “Rising Star Chef” by the Dallas Morning News in 2004. Following his appearance on Top Chef: Miami in 2007, Tre became a private chef, traveling the country for the next two years, cooking for celebrities including Russell Simmons and Jerry Stackhouse and leading cooking classes. He is currently the Executive Chef at Loft 610 in Plano, TX, and is working on his own restaurant, Marquee Grill, which is slated to open in 2011 in Dallas.
