A: I lie in bed flip the channels and watch television when I need to relax myself.

Q: How do your spend you weekends?

A: I spend my weekends playing cricket. We have an over 40 cricket team called Log Masters. As long as there is cricket playing I would spend my weekend taking part in cricket games. Apart from that, I do most of my relaxation at home with my family on the weekends.

Q: Where would you be on a Friday night?

A: A lot of small businesses that buy from Log Enterprises, they do happy hours especially on Friday night so I go out sometimes and support them.

Q: What is your favourite meal?

A: Well my favourite meal is Curry Duck and Dalpree roti, that’s a Trinidadian dish, but I love it.

Q: What challenges you most in life?

A: Making people happy, I always like to see people happy. When people are happy, everybody around you is happy as well. There won’t be any cursing or fighting and so on.

So when you are around me and you’re not, it is my challenge to make you feel comfortable.

Q: What is the most enjoyable aspect of your life?

A: The most important thing for me is getting to work and getting the work well done and ahead of time. Sometimes when I have to work on Saturdays I come down at six o’clock in the morning to make sure all the paper work is up to date.

Q: Where do you get inspiration to go on?

A: My inspiration comes from my wife of 23 years and my three children.

A: My wife I would say has had the most positive influence on my life. My wife is always there when I need her, playing that supportive role.

Q: If you were given the power to change one thing in the country or the world, what would it be?

A: I would make sure there is no poverty at all.

Q: Where do you see yourself in the next 5-10 years?

A: If God spares my life, I believe I would be one of the biggest wholesalers in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, as long as good health prevails.
