I had some amazing "firsts" in the last year: magazine contributor, fashion editor, personal stylist. I am grateful and honored to add my inclusion in a fabulous new book to that list.

"I really believe in shopping on a budget, and I don't believe for a moment that that compromises how good you can look... let's navigate the world with some style."

In addition to the choice and condition of a man’s shoes, a man’s choice in watch offers particular clues about his character. And like shoes, watches can creep into snob territory, where bigger, g...

There is a very select group of men who have mastered the endangered art of looking like the one who is really running things. It’s not about being splashy or flashy. Rather, it’s about taking a mo...

Introduction

It all started on a blind date in 1969...

On Valentine's Day in 1970 in Connecticut, three months after that blind date, a 33 year old bachelor named George Hahn married a widowed mother of four named Lynda.  George and Lynda spent their wedding night at the Essex House Hotel on Central Park South in New York City, before departing for their honeymoon in Barbados.  Exactly nine months and one day after the wedding, George Joseph Hahn, III was born.

George was born and raised just outside of Cleveland, Ohio in Lakewood, where he went to grade school at St. Luke School.  During his pre-sixteen time in Lakewood, George spent a lot of time riding his bike, mowing lawns, playing golf, and sneaking cigarettes.  His Jesuit education began in high school at St. Ignatius in downtown Cleveland.  Once he had his driver's license, George started a car cleaning business, enabling him to make enough money to get him through the first month of the school year.  During this time, George aspired to be a country club man, with a convertible and a Ralph Lauren wardrobe of pink, blue and khakii.

Once high school wrapped, it was off to Boston College, where George sought the kind of attention that only the stage can provide.  His first play was a one-act called "The Lottery" during his freshman year.  The applause was intoxicating.  From there, his college theater career grew to lead roles in productions of "Arms and The Man," "The Rainmaker," "The Normal Heart," "The Rimers of Eldrich," and "Julius Caesar."  George delved further into alternative directions with the Boston College radio station (WZBC), where he hosted a weekly radio show and served on the Board of Directors.  As a full-fledged alternative/theater person, George traded his pastels for lot of black, patchouli, earrings (in both ears) and several pairs of mid-calf Dr. Marten's in several colors (all dark).

After graduation in 1993, George spun his wheels in Boston for a year and a half as a hair salon receptionist by day, and a night club personality by night.  He also found time to play the lead in the Boston premiere of "The Vampire Lesbians of Sodom," for which he painfully shaved his legs without knowing that flesh-colored dance tights were an option.  He also played the feeble Joad brother Noah in an outdoor production of "The Grapes of Wrath."

In the Fall of 1994, George got an opportunity to move to New York.  For his first 18 months in Manhattan, he worked as a receptionist in one of New York's most exclusive hair salons, where he made hair appointments for some of the most pulled faces in the Northern Hemisphere.  Cousin Kathryn Hahn eventually joined him behind the reception desk where they both charged New York's wealthiest Prozac-stoned women thousands of dollars for highlights, bang trims and manicures that didn't make them look any younger.

George eventually moved on from the salon to the glamorous world of restaurant table service, working on both sides of the bar in places like Joe Allen, Film Center Café, 10th Avenue Lounge, Cafe Luxembourg, Revolution and Asia de Cuba at Morgan's Hotel.  After working in several unseen Equity showcases, professional representation eluded him.  So George capitalized on the rich opportunist traditions of The Copacabana School of Dramatic Arts and made enough strategic alliances to win auditions (and the roles) for "Sex and the City," "Law and Order: Criminal Intent," and Miramax's "Kate & Leopold."

George always had a knack for design.  As a youngster back at St. Luke's in Lakewood, he developed skills as a sketch artist.  He studied advertising design and layout at Boston College.  When he was interested in hiring a web designer in 2000 to create a website to showcase his work as an actor, a friend gave him an unused copy of Photoshop and Dreamweaver, along with the user manuals.  A hobby was born.  After doing small web and design work for friends, someone wanted to pay him for the work.  A hobby grew into a business.  Since 2004, George has owned and run GHX International, a one-man graphic and web design agency catering to individuals and small companies in entertainment.

He lives in Hell's Kitchen.
