Bond attended Presbyterian Day School, Grace Saint Luke's Episcopal School, Memphis University School, and the University of Alabama. He trained and graduated with Honors from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York. After graduating, he went on to work for the Marriott Hotel Corporation in New Orleans, a city he grew to love. He was an excellent chef who loved to share his creations with all he knew and loved. He was a world traveler who lived in Memphis, New York, New Orleans, Aspen, and Thailand. His travels took him all throughout North America, Central America, South America, Europe, and Asia and he met and made more friends than one could count. Bond had a passion for the outdoors, instilled at an early age, hunting with his grandfather, father, uncles, brothers, cousins and nephews in duck blinds throughout the Mississippi flyway. While living in Thailand, he became a Dive Master/Instructor and his passion for exploring the ocean was shared with all his students. He loved Horseshoe Lake where he fished, boated and cooked for and with family and friends. A 4A All-State football player himself at MUS, Bond, like his Dad, was a passionate Alabama Crimson Tide football fan. He never missed a game even while living in Thailand. Roll Tide!
