“I find inspiration and appreciate the small things in life…like breaking bread and sharing a glass of wine with friends from around the world.”

Roger Bissell


At the foundation of my life and career has always been a passion for creating and discovering authentic experiences.

I find inspiration and appreciate the small things in life…which people often overlook; something so simple as enjoying a meal.

Over the last 20 years, I have traveled the world dining in and operating Michelin restaurants, hotels, private country clubs, resorts and wineries. All of those experiences gifted me with incredible opportunities, partners, colleagues and lifelong friends. They also have driven me to share what I have learned too.

Today, I am the founder of UNWINED, a social platform that seeks to encourage people to truly live life on their own terms through exploration and discovery. We are also building a resource for brands and companies looking to build awareness, community and unforgettable experiences.
