Stefan co-founded Blue Fern Travel (Formerly Carpe DC Food Tours) while getting his phD in Archaeology from the University of Maryland. He has a passion for the intersection of food, history and culture and loves to share his knowledge with others.
He’s an avid, master home chef. Starting at a very young age, he would stand on a chair in the kitchen to help his mom stir. Now he’s excited to share that love of food with his and Mary’s daughter, whose first “real” food was Japanese ramen in Okinawa, Japan and their son, who loves Ethiopian food.
As an archaeologist, he’s worked with countless communities and students on projects, and loves to share untold stories discovered through artifacts and research with the community they are found in.
