Without Borders is a web series fully funded, filmed and produced by Chad Klyne, Clayton Klyne and Lyndon Wiebe. Travel, food and adventure on a budget. It has since turned television series called Chefs Run Wild.
Clayton will always remember his culinary instructor at SAIT Professional Cooking College in Calgary, Canada saying, “Once you become a qualified chef, you can work anywhere in the world you choose.” He did just that, and hasn’t looked back since.
Clayton’s passion for food began at age 15 when he worked as a kitchen hand in a Winnipeg Deli. Twenty years later he has had the opportunity to work in cities around the world, Edinburgh, Belfast, Calgary, Melbourne, and Auckland, just to name a few. He has also travelled extensively throughout Asia and Europe, on a mission to learn their regional cuisine, this being the basis for the “Chefs Run Wild” tv series
Lyndon was born and bred in Winnipeg before moving to Calgary in 1994. It was in Calgary where he discovered his passion for cooking and food. After graduating high school Lyndon took his $50 VW Rabbit and drove across Canada on a trip that was supposed to last three weeks. Eight months later he finally returned with another passion; Travel. He then graduated the Culinary Arts program at S.A.I.T. in Calgary and decided to combine the two things he loved most. After nearly a year of cooking and traveling in Australia, Lyndon took his first trip to Asia. He then spent three years living in Scotland and exploring Europe. In 2005 Lyndon came home to Canada. A year and a half later he reunited with Clayton and Chad in New Zealand for a year, then headed back to Oz before embarking on the trip of a lifetime. Lyndon currently resides in Winnipeg, Canada.
