So, what’s a Page?   

The easiest way to explain it is if you’ve seen the show 30 Rock – in essence, I am the Kenneth of Morning Joe. My big (or, venti, I guess) responsibility is taking care of the Starbucks on our show.   In all seriousness though, a Page is an entry-level position at NBCUniversal that does everything from giving studio tours to seating the SNL audience to working on the wide range of NBC shows produced in New York. Also, it’s a hard program to get into.

What’s your average day like?   

I wake up at 3:45am, cab over to 30 Rock, and go straight to the studio where I start my day. Then, at 5, I begin caffeinating the show. After that, it’s all fair game.  

How many cups of coffee do you drink each morning? 

Less than you’d think. More than I’d like to admit.

What’s your favorite lunch spot in 30 Rock? 

Easy. The cafeteria. Next question. 

What was your most exciting celebrity sighting in the building? 

The most bizarre was when I was working on SNL in my Page uniform and Jack McBrayer, who plays Kenneth, said hello. And somehow I’ve managed to tie the show 30 Rock into every answer. Very Page-appropriate.
