Brad Ogden-Reigner – Professional Chef
Brad recently moved to Statesville from Pennsylvania and has quickly become an active member of our local community. Brad is a graduate of East Stroudsburg University where he studied Acting and Directing, as well as Hotel, Restaurant and Tourism Management. Chef Brad has worked in the restaurant business in both the Pocono Mountains and the greater Philadelphia area for over 20 years and looks forward to serving up his brand of cuisine here in Statesville.
In addition to food and wine, Brad’s other passion is Theatre. He is a founding member of the Prospect Theater Company. He also co-wrote and directed the Off Broadway show Rivers Current in 2010, and taught children’s musical theatre classes at the Pocono Academy of Dance and Theatre Arts. Brad has served on the board of several non profits before moving to North Carolina, focusing on fundraising and community organizing. He is excited to work with YIPE to help make a difference in the lives of our most valuable resource – our youth!
