Roger spent his first five years in this twin-island country, before his family moved to Canada, settling in Edmonton, Alberta, where his parents owned a restaurant, and young Roger learnt the business, in addition to learning how to cook. It was his mother that taught him how to mix European flavors. As he grew up, Roger became more and more focused on cooking, and when it came time to enroll at the college, Roger decided for George Brown College of Hospitality, where he studied culinary arts.

After finishing his studies, Roger began slowly to build a name for himself, firstly joining the Toronto Royal Hotel, and later co-owning a number of restaurants, including the Kultura Social Dining, and Nyood Restaurant.

His screen debut came in 2010 as a host of his own show “Everyday Exotic” on Food Network Canada. Then in 2011 he made a number of successful appearances, such as the Challenger Chef in the show “Iron Chef America: The Series”, while also hosting the show “Heat Seekers” (2011-2012), with Aarón Sanchez. In 2012 he became the host of his most famous show so far – “Man Fire Food” (2012-2017) – in which he travels across the USA in search of the most innovative methods of cooking with fire. The popularity and overall success of the show increased Roger’s wealth to a large degree.

Concurrently, Roger could also be seen in “Chopped Canada” (2014-2015), and “Food’s Greatest Hits” (2016), among other shows, which only contributed to his net worth.

Roger is also an accomplished cookbook author; having released “Everyday Exotic: The Cookbook” in 2011, which won a Gourmand World Cookbook award.

They released two full-length studio albums “First Impressions for the Bottom Jigglers” (1994), and “Memories of the Soul Shack Survivors” in 1995, with one top 40 single “I Cry”.

Years later, Roger continued his musical career as he released two solo albums, “Soul Food” in 2008, and “Feedback” in 2013, the sales of which only increased his wealth.

Regarding his personal life, Roger is married to Leslie, with whom he has three daughters.

He is a well-known philanthropist; he traveled to Cambodia as a part of the World Vision Canada campaign, focused on making sure all children are familiar with the importance of healthy food and clean water. Also, Roger visited Save the Children in Bangladesh, a nutrition-related program to find a way to create health and nutrition programs with food available in the poorest areas of this South Asian country.
