GIDEON

Name: Gideon Levy
Birthplace: Brooklyn, NY, USA
Height: 6’ 5”
Weight: 205 lbs
Hair: Black

A scion of New York’s most prominent family of tour guides, Gideon has always had an interest in Gangster culture, economics, movies, TV shows and fashion. After a year of intensive study in the subject, he started a Gangster Bus Tour business with a few associates. A year later, he had strategically eliminated each of them in a highly cinematic montage  and became the sole owner of NYC Gangster Tours, and brought in a crew of loyal subordinates to do his bidding without question. He lives in Park Slope with his fiancee Danielle and dog Betty.

JOSE

Name : Jose Raudales
POB: Guatemala City, Guatemala
Height: 6’4″
Weight: 225 lbs
Hair: Black
Eyes: Dark Brown

Born and raised in Guatemala City, one of the world’s most dangerous cities, Jose was finally able to take a deep breath and enjoy the pleasures of living in the safest big city in the U.S. (by marrying a badass Irish girl from Brooklyn), and use some of his talents out in the street in a less threatening environment than the one back home. Jose is a geek, loves to read and to learn, to discover new cultures and new cuisines. Jose was perfect for NYC Gangster’s crew, and so, after touring the city for some of Gideon “The Boss” Levy’s business associates, “The Boss” decided to scout him for his new Mob family.

MARCUS

Name: Marcus Hillman
POB: Washington D.C., USA
Height: 5’11’
Weight: 175 lbs
Hair: Dark Brown
Eyes: Light Brown

During his stints in radio, street-sales, stand-up comedy, academia, world travel and tour guiding, Marcus Hillman has maintained a wannabe-gangster swagger that comes from a life-long passion for learning about crime and illicit activity. He lives in Williamsburg, Brooklyn where Bugsy Siegel was born, Donnie Brasco infiltrated the Bonanno family and debatable gangster hipsters now run the streets. Labor leader, alleged mob associate and possible distant relative Sidney Hillman would likely be proud.

He brings to bear the research skills that led to his winning the Ward Medal in History while attending the City College of New York and the performance skills gained through years of acting study and practice, including experience in improvisational theater and stand-up comedy.
