Ron Swanson

Ron Swanson is a macho, meat-loving government employee who works for the Parks and Recreation Department in Pawnee, Indiana. This manly man loves anything to do with bacon, eggs or steak, and is a fan of what the locals refer to as the “Meat Tornado”. Ron also enjoys woodworking and playing the sax as his alter ego, Duke Silver.

Duke Silver

Duke Silver is Ron Swanson’s smooth-talking alter ego on Parks & Recreation. He spends his evenings in Eagleton’s hottest bar playing jazz sax to the delight of elderly women. He likes to keep his act on the down low, so if you catch him at Cozy’s in his signature fedora, don’t call him “Mr. Swanson.”
