Orange you glad you're here?
Hi Everyone, my name is Joe and I'm proud to be the general manager of the Orange, contemporary brunch with appeal GM of our Riverwest location. I have an eclectic work background that has served me in this new role for me. I am loving the challenges it can take to provide excellent service and WOWmazing food to our guests. I've been a quick service food employee, a banker, and wire transfer technician, and then within the past 3 years a casual dining restaurant employee and now general manager of a restaurant! It's interesting to note that Orange instills a yeah I want to work here sort of feeling inside. I feel very comfortable with the idea of this sort of loyalty.

So yeah.. I look forward to exploring more of this community here!

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)
