Co-Owner of Cake Shop, Bruar Falls, The Library Bar
Since 1995, I have been creating music oriented cafes, bars & venues in New York City. We opened Cake Shop in 2004, as a cafe/bar/record store/venue that helped break bands like Vampire Weekend, MGMT and Dirty Projectors, as well as hundreds of international acts. In 2008 we opened Bruar Falls, a sister club in Williamsburg Brooklyn. Before that, I opened one of the first cyber cafes in NYC: alt.coffee. 1998 brought The Library Bar; a beer-and-shot dive bar with an indie-rock oriented jukebox. I am passionate supporter of talented bands and providing a stage for new acts to build as well as shape their sound and voice.
