Today, he is the voice for restaurant workers around the world, saying out loud what most people in the restaurant industry are only allowed to think.  He takes Broadway songs and adapts the words to tell stories about his work in food service.

He lives and works in New York City and enjoys The Brady Bunch, The Facts of Life and cocktails almost as much as he hates your baby.
