Chef Romo graduated from the Helene Boucher Culinary Art School in Vénissieux at age 19 and perfected his skill under French Master Chef Patrick Henriroux at the dual-Michelin Starred restaurant La Pyramide in Vienne, France.
Chef Romo spent a decade directing Patrick Properties Hospitality Group’s culinary programs and helmed the kitchen at Fish Restaurant. During that time, he was named a Monterey Bay Aquarium Sustainable Seafood Ambassador and member of the Seafood Watch Blue Ribbon Task Force recognizing his commitment to ocean-friendly seafood and Lowcountry fishermen.
Chef Romo now brings his European training and appreciation for locally sourced ingredients to his own concept, NICO, which opened in the fall of 2017.
As the design and fine art industries have become diluted and flat with the onset of Instagram stars and templated creativity, he still believes nothing can kill then purity of an individuals truth. Standing by the unique language of one's art, informed by mentors, introspection and years and years of mark-making is Tim's response to these scattered times.
The love for his wife Elise and his new daughter continues to be the driving force behind every move he makes.
Parked behind his super-sized monitor, Brady designs with the same careful attention to detail as do people who create authentic miniature soldiers. He sees every project as an opportunity to make a big statement for clients. Along with stellar design skills, Brady is also a smart strategist who finds tiny cracks that lead straight to a consumer’s sweet spot.
Under Brady’s creative direction, HOOK has earned a large collection of industry awards, including 2010 Small Agency of the Year for the Southeast by Advertising Age magazine.
The Minnesota native is also the founder and frontman for The Dubplates, a traditional reggae riddim band. In June of 2017 their album Box Full of Steel debuted at #4 on the iTunes US Reggae Album chart and #9 on the Billboard Reggae chart.
Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, I began my young life as an actor, studying at the Lee Strasberg Theater Institute and spending a number of years on stage and in films. After living and working in Los Angeles for several years at E!, Comedy Central, and other studios, I arrived in Charleston in 2005 as the Lead Editor of a national television series. Since then, I have acquired a large amount of broadcast clients, Fortune 500 Companies, and local businesses as a successful commercial filmmaker, while continuing to produce and work on many exciting personal film projects.
My parents collected and operated one of New York City’s most influential folk art galleries for two decades, lending crucial behind-the-scenes experience to the visual art industry. In 2016 I worked with my wife Erin to launch The Southern - a commercial art business dealing work by artists connected to the American South. We have curated over 15 exciting exhibits at our white wall gallery space, and beyond.
