Born on the northwest coast of Scotland, Campbell expressed an interest in cooking by shadowing his mother in the kitchen. His passion brought him to the Bahamas Hotel Training College, where he became the Department Chair for their Culinary Arts Department before moving to Grand Rapids. Campbell was hired in as a culinary arts teacher at Secchia Institute for Culinary Education. Campbell has recently retired from this role, however continues to consult for local, national, and international companies. His expertise as a culinary chef has won him countless medals from food competitions, as well as pronounced him as a junior culinary team coach. Campbell is also the co-author of the award-winning, best seller book “Modern Garde Manger”. One of his recent accomplishments was producing a 12-part series on Italian and Scottish cuisine for WZZM TV13. The monthly cable TV show won a national bronze medal at the Paragon Awards.
