Otis Gray is a sculptor and cook raised in the deep woods of Belmont, Vermont. He graduated from Rhode Island School of Design in 2014 with a BFA in Sculpture. Between serving tables, bartending, barbacking, helping to start an organic food truck, and skipping class to cook new recipes all day, his life has consistently been tormented by the beauty of cooking. After his Fulbright proposal to travel Peru and study food philosophy was rejected, he cashed in every dollar and went anyway. Four months circumnavigating the country talking to farmers, fishermen, and chefs resulted in an extraordinary and sometimes harrowing voyage that changed the way he thinks about food and the human experience. He returned to the U.S. in late 2014 and brought his insatiable hunger for stories and traditions home with him. Now he is embarking on a journey with Hungry to share stories you don't usually hear, and to channel his genuine love for food, community, and inspiring stories.
