Warren Bobrow
Klaus The Gnome, Inc., Chief Executive Officer

I wrote the groundbreaking book named Cannabis Cocktails, I thought- why reinvent myself when I have dozens of cannabis recipes that are already tested and better yet, published. It took me a long time, but I succeeded at something in life. When all I was ever told that I was never going to succeed at anything. Nice parents. 

Backstory: I became a TV Engineer after graduating college in 1985 (my Emerson degree has become a distant memory, no one ever asks me where I went to college...) I worked for a time in the mid 80's in NYC. I worked nights at WNET-13, & WPIX-11, and Danceteria- a famous nightclub. I always wanted to become a chef from being raised to know what good food was and how if you follow food, you follow history- or distillation as I learned in later life after writing whiskey cocktails.. but I digress. 

I became pot scrubber due to necessity and succeeded from failure multiple times over the past thirty years or so. I lived in Charleston, SC and co-founded the first manufacturing corporation that made fresh pasta in South Carolina. Named, Olde Charleston Pasta, I was put out of business during Hurricane Hugo in 1989.

Debt to my lenders in the fresh pasta biz forced me to get a real job. In a bank. Soul crushing work from teller up to customer service. Then into a series of private banks, not my potential, at all. Was this the same person?

Specialties: Highly Creative Cocktail Mixology and to the best of my ability- creative bar programs using all sorts of organic and biodynamic ingredients and cannabis too. I destroyed them on Viceland Live- on live global tv. Ask me. 
6x Published food/cocktail/wine writer. Public speaking, former dishwasher/pot scrubber.
