The story about how you got your start in the industry reads as pretty legendary, how true is that? I mean was it Hollywooded up for the site?

I notice that all three of your blends are Ecuadorian wrapper with Dominican republic binder & filler. What was the process behind that choice? Did you know when before you took that first flight to Santiago? Or was that the way the stars aligned because of that trip to Santiago?

A followup, or it could be included in the above question. "What is it about the Ecuadorian wrapper, Dominican Republic filler/binder combo that makes you say, "This is the way to go?" Is it the flavor profile? The burn? Strength? Or was it the best way to go business model-wise?"

What made you choose the DR as opposed to Nica?  Seems like all the boutiques are coming out of Nica these days.

How'd a Puerto Rican from Albany get such a hot wife?

Do you create blends based on your tastes or what you perceive the public would enjoy? What would a "blenders"/ estate owners blend, or rather what would you blend for yourself that the general public might not appreciate?
