About Me

How It Happened

My name is Anthony Copicotto and I am beginning a new journey as an Uber Driver in New York City. I was blessed to have a beautiful childhood as well as my High School years and leading into College. Life took all sorts of twists and turns for me, but hasn't it for all of us? I never thought in a million years that driving people around to their destinations, especially in New York City, was even an option for me. NOW IT IS! I am excited about this experience and will be chronicling my experiences with the passengers as well as behind the wheel with all of you.

A bit about myself. It's funny I want to drive for a living because for most of my life as a licensed driver I was racked with anxiety, especially at high speeds on big highways and parkways. Not anymore. I am determined to succeed and hope that my on going journey inspires you as someone else did for me in taking up this blog. As far as my personal life goes, I am a seasoned distance runner of over 25 years, specializing in the marathon distance with a PR of 2:50. I also race at 5,000 meters and 10,000 meters with PRs of 16:25 and 34:40. I lift weights to reinforce my training as a runner, although I'm not terribly strong (probably decent strength for a man my age and body type) I give it my all as with other things. A new passion for me is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I train with Renzo Gracie Rockland where I live in upstate New York and I'm so glad I made the decision to take it up. All the Instructors are patient and awe-inspiring, as well as the other students who are AWESOME! I have a little dog who I Love with all my heart. I am an animal lover and lover of nature in general. I like to hike a lot and take it all in. I am also very Spiritual in nature. I meditate as much as I can and envelope myself with things that nurture my experiences and surround myself with positive, Loving people. I am also a family-oriented person, coming from a tight knit family, most of whom hail from The Bronx and Queens. Enough about me already!
