He was born to James and Janet Donaldson in Stony Brook, New York. He grew up enjoying an idylic childhood in Northport, New York, a town always dear to his heart.

He went on to become a professional waiter at high end restaurants in New York City and on Long Island. He enjoyed serving good food to people, always with a smile and warm greetings to his customers.
