He was born with the given name Theodore but had it legally changed as a teenager. He is the first cousin, once removed, of anti war Activist Robert Greenblatt.

In the mid-1990s, he started a cappuccino coffee company, with pod machines at Penn Station and the New York City airports, but following the rise of Starbucks, sold his Business and returned to practicing law.
