Wendell Holland grew up a creative and athletic child in the western Philadelphia suburb of Lower Merion. He received his BA in International Studies from Morehouse College, and JD from University of Pennsylvania Law School. After being a law clerk in Philadelphia Civil Court and Family Court, he took a leap of faith and turned his passion of building furniture into a career. In 2014 he started Beve Unlimited, where he and his team make beautiful furniture out of reclaimed wood. Within a few short years, he knew he made the right decision as other doors began opening.
In 2018 one of his goals came true when he was cast on the CBS show Survivor: Ghost Island, and he won the show after 39 grueling days of survival. Winning Survivor proved to Wendell that anything is attainable, and that has been his stance on life ever since.
