Todd Fountaine, author of "Straight No Chaser".

Todd  was born to a single mother in Harlem, NY in 1966. He then moved to Brooklyn and later to his current residence in Queens, NY. As a young man he was always outspoken and challenged the minds of those around him. Upon graduating high school he began working in the Industrial field. As most who aspire to use their talents, Todd  worked a 9 to 5 by day, and managed musical artists by night. His music showcases and open mic shows became some of the hottest events in New York's night life scene.
Fountaine's venture into the literary field was long overdue. Nevertheless, he has arrived and Enjoy Life Magazine introduced him as a Commentary Writer, December 15, 2009.  He shared his knowledge of business, streets and family with us every month inside the column "STRAIGHT NO CHASER". As seen on FACEBOOK, Todd delivers ... Todd gets the truth out and no opinion is too strong for him to challenge! "Straight No Chaser" represents the approach that he takes when addressing the truth (as seen by him).  View his archived column here.
