“It’s a vocation. Word is getting out that it is actually a profession that gets you out in the world and lets you live the life you want. That’s very uplifting,” says Ervin Trykowski, The Singleton’s first-ever global ambassador, and pioneer in his own right. Trykowski, 30, is elfin; the epitome of joviality and youthful vigour, with a worldliness that belies mere age. You could say it comes from being a bartending prodigy and his years as a discreet keeper of knowledge.
