We had a great run or almost 20 years operating one . the largest studios on the east coast. 
So many memories and so may great artists.

"Real" has been one of my greatest joys.  Being able to express yourself via music is a gift to oneself and if you are luck - to others.

Food

Nonna Gilda

It all started with finding her scribbled hand written recipes in the attic. This let me to recreating every one of her recipes. Nonna was with us for 97 years and was tasting and commenting on the recipes as long as she was with us. 

This lead to the Food Blog on Facebook and eventually let me to the Food Network’s – Cooks vs. Cons S1E11 “Candy Clash” and the opening of our family Pizzeria – “Mattei Family Pizza.”

The Last airbender

M. Night Shyamalan

Definitely a bucket list item.  Not only being in a major motion picture but being on set not three feet from M. Night himsel.  Amazing experience.  Can you spot me in the film?
