Q: Are you where you have always wanted to be in life?

Q: What is your biggest professional challenge?
A: Challenging myself to achieve or attain things
that are bigger than the last challenge that I had. For example, in a difficult economic environment, what’s the key to success?
Q: What is your biggest life challenge?
A: Finding a balance between personal, spiritual, work, financial and the physical aspects of my life. And making sure I attain that balance and then when I achieve it, how I maintain it.
Q: When you look to the future, what do you see?
A: I see things that I would want to create with my future. I dream out load and then I create them.
Q: What is your favourite pastime?
A: Spending time with loved ones. I like reading and I enjoy some sports.
Q: What is your favourite meal?
A: Trinidadian fish broth with red snapper.
Q: On Saturday nights where are you likely to be?
A: At home with my family.
Q: What upsets you the most?
A: Poor customer service. When people or customers are treated badly, it reflects poorly on the effort of everybody else in the work environment.
Q: What is your guiding philosophy?
A: Be present, seek abundance and embrace all that is around you, because you may not be here tomorrow.
Q: If you had a chance to manage Barbados for a day, what would you do?
A: I would work to ensure that Barbadians understand the value of what they have. Barbados is a beautiful country and it’s blessed with a beautiful environment and a bright and hard-working people. I would work to remind them of that. Barbados is a gem, it’s a beautiful country that you have to treasure with all your heart.
