I'm a hunter, avid outdoorsman and former restaurant chef whose life revolves around food and being in wild places. I grew up in the foothills of North Carolina spending my childhood hunting, fishing and walking the woods as much as possible.


I was also lucky enough to grow up beside my grandma who was a phenomenal cook and the person that ultimately inspired me to become a chef.

In 2003 I started my professional cooking career in the US Coast Guard as a Culinary Specialist. After completing my military contract I returned to college and obtained a bachelor's degree in Culinary Arts at The Art Institute of Charleston.

I went on to cook in Charleston, South Carolina fine dining establishments such as The Ocean Room at Kiawah Island, Peninsula Grill, and Circa 1886, while working as a personal chef on the side.


I ultimately reached my goals of owning and operating a restaurant and food truck. But after spending over a decade in hectic fast-paced kitchens and starting a small family, I knew I wanted to get back to my roots, which is being in the outdoors. 


So me and my family packed up, left the city and moved to a rural coastal countryside town on our very own Back-40. We did this to give us a better opportunity to live off of the land, eat loads of wild game & fresh seafood and raise our children in an outdoor-oriented environment.

I hope that by sharing new techniques and recipes, I'll inspire others to have as much passion for the cookery of wild game as they do hunting for it. Wild game is delicious and can be the kitchen star as it once was in years past.

I started this blog in 2017 and have since been featured in Garden and Gun, Strung Magazine, Southern Flavor Magazine, The Sportsmen's Advocate Magazine, and The LEM Catalog.
