Upon graduating from both hotel management in Miami and culinary arts at the Culinary Institute of America, Johnathan quickly climbed up the corporate ladder in the U.S. to eventually become the youngest F&B Director and Deputy General Manager of the Hilton in Seoul at the age of 28. His tastes and extensive knowledge in the luxury business eventually led him to the development of a one-of-a-kind "Wine Resource Center" in Asia. FMK Corp, where Johnathan is currently the Managing Director and General Manager, is the official importer and distributor of Ferrari and Maserati in Korea. As a founder of FMK, it gives him plenty of excuses to continue his interests in advising everything that is luxurious, especially cars.
