After graduating from the University of North Carolina — to the delight of his loving family – Kevin parlayed his academic achievements into washing dishes. Professionally. After ten years of working in every possible position in the restaurant industry, Kevin launched Acme Food & Beverage Co. in Carrboro. Since that time, Acme has been featured in Bon Appetit, Southern Living, Garden & Gun, The New York Times, Esquire, and many other national and regional newspapers and magazines. Kevin is one of the nation’s leading advocates of sustainable food and local farms. His work maintains deep connections to the traditional foodways at the heart of the honest food of the American South. In 2016, Kevin was named by Lululemon as one of their 29 American artists and taste ‘makers,’ and in 2017 was chosen to be a Lululemon Ambassador. For the second year in a row, Kevin has been named the Executive Chef of the Wanderlust Festivals. This year will also mark the opening of his second restaurant. The father of two oh-so-awesome young women, Kevin lives in Carrboro, North Carolina.
