Why Somerset?  I spent a few years living and performing in the Caribbean. When I came back, my Mom was getting older, and I didn’t want to be too far away. I found the best value in Somerset. I’ve been here for six years and enjoy that the town is small enough there’s no traffic, but with amenities and easy access to big cities and the beach. That’s Central Jersey in a nutshell.

Favorite local spots? Bagel Peddler has the best fresh bagels and pork roll, egg and cheese sandwiches in Jersey—very important for a single guy who can’t cook. The Stage House Tavern is a nice, big family restaurant and bar that has great food and is really the only place
to be in town. It’s always a fun scene and the best burger I’ve ever had! I also love Colonial Park, a sprawling park with lots to do, from rose gardens to paddle boats and mini golf.

Tell us more about your work: It’s always different. Last week, I did two corporate dinners, a sweet 16 in Brooklyn, and two upscale private parties in Manhattan. This week, I’m at the world-famous Magic Castle in Hollywood and, in two weeks, I’m working on a cruise ship through Spain and France. It’s the best job. Everywhere I go, there is some kind of a party at some kind of cool place.
