I'am college graduate and father of three daughters; Jasmine Sherry 17, Rean 16, and Dana 14. Most of my employment years i spent in the restaurant management field. I worked for financial institutions as well at the same time in marketing and finance. My favorite job of all times is working for Taste Freeze as a fry and milk shake attendant. It was the atmosphere that i dig the best. People around me effect everything in my life, not the position. By the way i was 17 years of age then. Here and there i was involved in local politics, like the high school shut down because of a protest or a rally, and in college i got in trouble for bringing beer to the football game. I was a student Government and suppose to behave like a student Senator. I was in the spot lite as i excused myself, it was a brush and let go. I like student clubs, group, well we get to raise hell together after something like a project or a meeting. AISEC was my favorite. The international Association of Students In Business and Economics, it sound different in french. I went to grad School because my sisters drove me to it, one with a Master and the other beyond Grad School, and my employer paid for it, i ended up with an MBA in Marketing Management. I went on to work for both the public and the private Sector as a Marketing Coordinator representing the JTPA to everyone in seven Southeast Los Angeles County Cities. Press releases, and cities meeting were the top priorities of my work load agenda. We were funded by the State through the Federal act of Job Training Partnership Act, therefore we had to cater to the local politicians such as assemblymen, congressmen, and senators too, like what her name, Diane Feinstein and Miss Boxer. Funny I learn how to be real young, i mean very young, well extremely young as all those who like to post their high school photo for the public to recognize them, as local public officials told me to do so because that's how most people knew them. i like water sports, or hobbies like fishing, sailing, snorkeling, and just plain sit on a sandy beach, read, and dip in that water when i feel like it. Listen to music and enjoy people watching as well. It is amazing how much you can learn from watching others. That's what we were brought up doing anyway. Now i spent most of my times developing websites , writing, scouting for high quality contents and show time images, as i post on my digital publications. I consider myself lucky because i had great parents who devoted their time to raise me and looked after me to have education. i hope to continue making a difference in others for as much as i can, and as little as they comprehend and retain from any of my publications contents. I feel it is part of our life journey to contribute positive anything to everything around us.
