Mail Carrier, they also call me:  The Mayor of Larchmont and Cupid of Larchmont because I fixed up two couples and one got married.


What do you do:

– For work?

I deliver the mail, door-to-door, bringing checks and cheer to everyone that allows me to, every day.  With a smile.

– For fun?

Cook, travel, go to where I was born – New Orleans.  Enjoy life with my kids and grandkids.

Let’s Get It On by Marvin Gaye

Why did you pick this song? What does it do for you?

Because I’m old school.  It reminds me of my youth.  That was my hey-day, in my twenties.  It’s always fun in your twenties.  You don’t know what you are doing, where you’re going, what’s your peak, what’s your bottom.

Where can we find you?

We put our bodies on a diet. Why not our brains? This is the motivation for our optimism playlist.

Here’s proof that optimism rules. That it’s good for business. And music, of course, improves health and well being
