Brevity and language power are poet's tools Eighty uses to craft solid, influential text. He writes about education, food, poetry, cigars, drinks and football. He has adapted to the modern utilization of keywords, SEO and front-loaded writing. Building to a climax is no longer the game. A piece must start strong and grab interest or be ignored.
He writes for his wife and children, who are fascinating bilingual people.

Eighty has worked on the front lines of the hospitality business his whole life. The characters serving and being served fascinate him. His ear for dialogue and eye for personality developed in the F&B industry.

On his own time, he loves to cook for his family. He motivates himself through the work week by dreaming of the meat marinating in his fridge. His oldest son has food allergies, forcing him to be adaptive and creative.

He was once the fastest and most improvisational bartender around. He makes drinks with heart and also efficiency. Ask not if the cocktail takes too long. Rather, streamline your production and build the drink faster.
