From their website:
“Chef Tobias Dorzon was born and raised in the Washington, D.C. area, where he grew up watching his Liberian father and chef in the kitchen. Chef Tobias initially opted to pursue football and attended Jackson State University on a full athletic scholarship.
After 3 years in the NFL and CFL, Chef Tobias eventually decided his true calling was in the kitchen. He went on to study at the Art Institute of Washington and abroad in Brazil, before apprenticing at local restaurants. Over time, he grew his meal prep and catering businesses and opened The Victory Truck in Washington, DC in 2018. His culinary masterpieces have drawn attention on social media and led him to television where he has won Guy’s Grocery Games on Food Network on multiple occasions.
When he isn’t cooking, he’s preparing and serving his food to the homeless, speaking to youth groups and, most importantly, spending time with his 2 beautiful daughters.”
