Nathan wrote “Sam The Clam” in the mid-eighties while attending high school at H.B. Woodlawn in Arlington, Virginia. He holds a B.S. in Health Science from James Madison University as well as a Culinary Arts Degree from Le Cordon Bleu. Nathan’s career in television began on the second season of The Next Food Network Star, where he finished among the top four. He is the chef and host of A Lyon in the Kitchen (Discovery Health and Fit TV) and has appeared as a guest chef/expert on Home Made Simple (TLC) and Real Simple Real Life (TLC). Nathan is also the cohost, and chef, of Growing a Greener World (PBS), and soon, with the help of his family and friends, he will successfully complete his very first cookbook.
Having worked with local growers in California farmers’ markets for almost a decade, Nathan believes that good health and education go hand in hand, and that with the help of others, almost anything can be achieved.
