Guest Bio -

Chef Brother Luck is an award-winning chef, entrepreneur, and advocate for the pursuit of self-discovery. With a childhood marked by humble beginnings, Brother is on a mission to prove to others that while our past is forever a part of who we are, it does not determine the people that we become. By drawing on his own childhood trauma, Brother uses his life as a testament to prove how pride, courage, determination, and perseverance helped him survive early life challenges and empowered him to achieve

great success in the face of adversity.

Today, Brother has earned a reputation as a celebrity chef through appearances on Chopped, Beat Bobby Flay, Top Chef, The Rachael Ray Show and the Today Show. He is also a successful business owner with the establishment of his restaurants Four by Brother Luck and Lucky Dumpling, both located in his home of Colorado Springs.  Brother Luck recently released his memoir “NO LUCKS GIVEN,” taking off the white chef’s coat and going beyond the kitchen to relive his own turbulent life story with the goal of teaching readers that even when life gets hard, there is hope.
