What makes this bar great: Ty’s is turning 45 this fall; I guess that fact alone tells the whole story.
Best drink I make: Raspberry cakes (delicious and dangerous!)
I love it when customers: Are totally enjoying themselves!
I hate it when customers: Start acting stupid or walk in with an attitude or a chip on their shoulder, blah!
Craziest thing I’ve seen here: What haven’t I seen?! Especially back in the day when Boots was still part of Christopher! I’m gonna be a gentleman about this and plead the fifth here, lol!
Other places I’ve worked: I’ve been pouring at many places all over the city but what you really wanna know is that XES (RIP) gave me my very first chance ever at a gay bar, it was a holiday party, I wore nothing but my undies, beautiful memory!!
My hometown: Sunny and trendy California!

Favorite DJ: Tough one! What about favorite a DJ that I miss and it’s not longer in NY? Aaron Tilford!
Other stuff you need to know about me: A lot of people have this misconception about me being mean and grumpy all the time, I’m totally not!! I guess those are just my natural face features, I’m as sweet as a peach!!
