Robert Arrington is a Youtube personality that goes by DeerMeatForDinner. He currently has over 850,000 subscribers and puts out weekly videos of him catching/killing, cleaning and then cooking.
Today, Robert has a giant following on digital platforms, but at one point he was telling his story on conventional television. When the economy shifted and things got tough on television, Robert and his wife decided to go a different direction but were not exactly sure what that was.
They were in the kitchen making their favorite... deer meat for dinner. While cooking, they brain-stormed, "What do we like in this world? What makes us happy?" The answer: Deer meat! At that very second, we ran into the office and bought the name "Deer Meat For Dinner". Right away, we started uploading videos on our YouTube channel and before we knew it, DMFD started to grow... fast! Now, they are devoting everything they have into their brand.
Tom Rowland caught up with Robert and sat down with him to learn his story of growing up as a Florida Cracker, wondering if he had enough money to buy the domain, www.deermeatfordinner to uploading 3-4 videos per week to a growing and loyal audience. Robert is a dedicated family man who allows the viewers to get to know the most important people in his life, his family. Between his family, editing and creating, DeerMeatForDinner found 1.5 hours to sit down and tell his entire story and a few funny ones along the way.
