David Bondarchuck tells about going from homeless to decorating the Whitehouse and meeting Martha Stewart as a caterer and decorator.
The reality of creative work is that being successful takes inspiration, access to some basic resources, and a lot of drive. Chef, decorator, and founder of Scratch Catering Services David Bondarchuck knows this better than most people.
As a teenager David lived in a homeless shelter. He spent his days at the Denver Public Library devouring books, including books on baking and cooking. David’s inspiration came when he saw Martha Stewart on TV and realized he could have a successful career doing creative things he loved. The library provided the essential tool - knowledge and education - to get David started on a journey that would take him from his love of catering here in Denver to decorating the white house, competing on the food network, and meeting Martha Stewart herself.
