Current Job: Apprentice mechanic in a Con Edison steam plant in Manhattan
Past Jobs: Until 2005, he was a currency trader in Manhattan for Global FX, and now trades for his own account. (Why did the NY Times print that he trades for himself now? Is that supposed to redeem the fact that he was in finance and now is like, learning to be a mechanic?)
Education: Received associate’s degree from Johnson & Wales University in Providence, R.I.
Parents: His father is an optician with 21st Century Optics, an ophthalmic laboratory in Long Island City, Queens. No career info for the mother, who probably spends her time whining to her son about how he used to be a trader and is now an almost-mechanic.
Cute Story Time!
The story goes like this: the first date sucked, but they still went out again. Then one day the girl told the guy she had allergies to food that made her face turn weird colors. He has the same problem with different food and his face turns green! (LOLZ OMG…Zzzz…) Then his face turned colors when he proposed. (This waste of space made MY face turn colors)
Verdict: Not terrible credentials (still recovering from last week’s selection) but the story was a total waste of space. Why not write about the person who is bffs with Obama? I want a story from THEM.
