Guy on the left look familiar? Well, that's Marc Istook and me in my living room. We took this just a couple of Saturdays ago. A few years back we were both looking for a gig and we landed one together at Food Network. I was looking to get my foot further in the door after my guest appearance on Emeril Live and he was an already experienced television host. It was a great pairing because we got along so well and he really taught me plenty about the job and career field as a whole. Here we are back in 2006 on the set of Gotta Get It!
We were trying to tell you about a neat museum-quality orange juicer ... with a smile :-). That was then ... and now, we are both still working and enjoying the dream. He's based on the west coast, but just recently he was here for business and on the way to the airport, he made time for a meal with me and my guy in Brooklyn. We introduced him to the world of mofungo and he loved it! After lunch, we chatted and I found out not only can you see Marc interviewing celebs on TV Guide channel and others, but you can hear him in the Old Navy Modelquin commercials. You know the ones with the mannequin's that have a tabloid life? He's the male announcer on many of them! Yaaaaaay Marc!!! He has such a great voice and other things are on the way. I just wanted to give an update on him for the people that caught us on the show together. We still chat as often as our schedules permit and we cheer each other on towards our dreams. Everytime I see the commercials now, it's an event! I don't tweet, but he does ... here, stop on by and say hi to my buddy and tellem I'm proud and I miss working with him :-).
