What Are You Most Passionate About?

I am most passionate about music and the arts. It’s in my blood, it’s in my DNA. I remember being in awe seeing my mother draw and paint. Also, my grandmother introduced me to latin music and jazz- the music of that time. My passion for music and arts has grown since I was a child.

Who Is Your Hero? Why?

My wife Zakia because she is my backbone. She is the one that can tell me things at critical moments that I’m not aware of, and I listen to her, and it turns out she’s right. She’s got my back. When everybody else goes away, she is there. She doesn’t have to be. But she wants to be. She’s my she-ro! I don’t know about any he-ro.

What Is Your Favorite Sound?

The sound of music.

What Project Would A Laptop Help You With?

I am a painter- portraits, interpretations of dreams, things bordering on the abstract.

Short Description Of Project

I’ve heard how some people put their art on the computer and send it out for others to see and to buy, and I would love to do that. I don’t know how to yet but I want to learn.

How Would A Laptop Help You?

People say when you get old you have to chill out, but I still have a brain in my head. I still want to learn. A computer is a hell of a learning tool! Given the choice I would prefer a PC.
