Alton Brown was born in Los Angeles, and was raised in Georgia. His father owned a radio station and was publisher of the White County News newspaper. During Brown’s early career in the show business, he was a cinematographer to several music videos in the 1980s and the early 1990s. Feeling dissatisfied with the number of cooking shows on American television, Brown wanted to start his own. To prepare himself, Brown enrolled in the New England Culinary Institute, graduating in 1997. Shortly thereafter, Brown’s first show, Good Eats, began airing on The Food Network. In addition to Good Eats, Brown has also starred on Feasting on Asphalt, Feasting on Waves and he currently hosts Iron Chef America and Cutthroat Kitchen.
