About Ethan

Hi, I’m Ethan.

I created a cooking show that focuses on techniques and the why behind cooking with plenty of food inspiration along the way. Coming from a family that likes to cook, food has always been a big part of my life, but up until early 2019, I thought life used to work like this:

  1. Do well in grade school and get accepted to college
  2. Do well in college and get a good-paying job
  3. Work in that job, live your life, play your finances right, and retire.
I was firmly in step 3, having done well in grade school, then graduating from NC State with my degree in accounting, and started working in a finance and technology consulting job where I traveled every week Mon - Thurs.

About 2 years into that job, I started a little hobby of making cooking videos on the weekend. Now I have loved cooking (and eating!) my entire life, but making videos was something completely foreign to me. I knew nothing about cameras, filming, lighting, sound or audio, but I loved learning about it and making these videos.

At the same time, I wasn't loving my job as much and was actually applying for my Master's in analytics. As I started to make more of these food and cooking videos though, I realized that's what I truly loved doing. It was at this time my thoughts on how life worked started to change. I started to ask myself questions:

  • Is it possible to make a fulltime job out of something I truly do enjoy?
  • Do I know enough to make enjoyable and information content?
  • Should I quit my job?
  • What will my family and friends think if I quit?

On June 14th, 2019, I quit.
 I took my possessions, the money that I had earmarked for my masters, and after living on my own since I started college in 2012, I moved back in with my parents to pursue food and cooking content creation full time. I'm learning new things every day about food, cooking, and creation and truly enjoy it.

That brings us to today, I've answered the latter 3 questions of those ones above, but I need your help answering that first one. Through support from people like you, I hope to make that answer a yes.

Your patron support will go towards quality ingredients, new filming gear, and ultimately, making this cooking show as great as it can be.

Thank you for your consideration, now let's get back to cooking!
