First up is our very own Anthony Lobosco.
You may have already met Anthony, but do you know his favorite local spots? His favorite slice? That he’s very into zombies?

I met Tom when he first moved to New York and he had this genuinely smitten, doe-eyed view of the city. It wasn’t naive, but actually completely refreshing and made you fall in love with the city all over again through his eyes. Even now, over 5 years later he hasn’t lost that.
Aside from being half of one of my favorite couples ever, he’s been writing, directing and producing skits and videos with his friends since college. I was excited to see Scissor Cop #5 viewed at the New York Television Festival this year! (He also does a kick-ass karaoke rendition of Hall & Oats’ Private Eyes.)
Name: Tom Silvestro
Occupation: DC Comics Coordinator
Borough/Neighborhood: Greenpoint, Brooklyn
