Parry was born and raised in Chicago,IL, until moving to The Natural State at the age of 9 where he stayed until graduating from Greenwood Highschool in 2010. Adverse in the culinary arts from a young age, but instead of going to culinary school, he decided to join the Air Force in 2011 where he was stationed at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Anchorage, Alaska. It was there he honed his skills in the kitchen, but it was also where he discovered his interest in art; specifically in the graphic arts.
After completing his four year contract in the Air Force in 2015, Parry decided it was time to come home and joined the local 188th Wing Air National Guard unit, which he is still continuing his military service with. Parry is currently attending the University of Arkansas-Fort Smith and is pursuing a degree in Graphic Design. As a chef, Parry embraces the vision of owners and restaurants to help bring their ideas to the plate. As a graphic designer, he uses the same approach to embrace the client and their vision to create visuals that will web in their audience and customers.
During downtime, Parry likes to draw on his computer or on ipad. If he isn’t drawing, he’s probably working out, watching anime, trying out new recipe ideas, or seeing what’s on trend to better understand what his classmates are talking about.
