Best known for | Since 1976, I coach leaders to apply my GetUNstuckNOW.org . Breakthrough Coaching system strategies to create improved, measurable results, guaranteed in writing. Bartending is a natural fit 😉
Best story from behind the wood | There are no coincidences! 1st bartending position after certifying was at the College Street Bar. My very 1st guest sits at the bar (arriving early for a party there) and we start chatting: He’s visiting from overseas and I’ve been to his town. Turns out we had several people in common. Great tipper too 😉
What do you collect? Mini brand liquor bottles from my travels (Fav is a black mini Inca Pisco bottle from Peru, when I got home read the label to see ‘distilled in Detroit 😉 + fascinating 1-of-a-kind, in-the-moment photos from my travels and at home (see below).
Favourite thing about your city? Toronto has everything world class for both locals and tourists (food, sports, entertainment … and 24-7 safety). I love to chat with visitors looking at a map and pointing out the awesome things to do nearby ;-0
What was the last photo that you took? just posted a video clip of a jet landing at Toronto airport as I was driving just feet under it on Highway 427 (The runway starts at the wall of the highway. Yikes!!)
Where was your last vacation? Gulf of Eilat (ahhhh… the awesome sunrise coming up over Egypt, Jordan, Israel and Saudi Arabia, all within eyesight!
Any claims to fame? lots (Google me), looking forward to including more as a bartender 😉

Fernet or Cynar? Cynar: Light, bitter yet sweet, lightly flavored with artichoke.
New Orleans or New York City? Parteee! I feel at home in both!
Glass or Tin? trick question? best when both used together 😉
