While I was born in Tulsa and moved to Texas in junior high, I will always consider myself a Texan. However, since my mother immigrated to the US from the UK, I was fortunate to spend my summers growing up with my family abroad and consider England my second home. With well over a decade and a half of catering and fine dining experience, I honed my style and craft during a two-year stay in New York City, where I cooked under Harold Dieterle, the winner of Top Chef, Season 1 at his restaurant, Perilla. However, after a couple of years in the Big Apple, and meeting my now-wife and business partner, I decided that it was time to return to Texas and settle down in Austin. In the years since starting Royal Fig in 2009, I'm proud of how the Fig family has grown, not only at work, but also at home. Now, I enjoy spending time taking my son off-roading in my jeep, cheering on my beloved Chicago Cubs, curating my hydroponic farm and creating the best holiday light show in our neighborhood every year.
