This book relates many events from my realty. I have been involved in many event enterprises from the West to the African Continent. I am fortunate to be able to feature some amazing and solid Jamaican Fine Artists who have been such a bright light on my journey and who have given me abundant support along the way. Amazing human beings like my apprentice master, ‘Sir’ Robert Bryan. This book also shines the spotlight on my sporting exploits in the realm of basketball and swimming and my connection with Aqua Youths Sports Club. Of course, I cannot overstate the importance of my wife and children to my journey. They have been a source of strong support and encouragement, not to mention a tremendous motivation for me to do the things I do. This book allowed me to revisit some inspiring moments in my existence. I have been blessed to have met some interesting human beings over my journey. I celebrate the fact that I have been able to display my merchandise and art work at five Summer Olympics, one Winter Olympics game, one Football World Cup Final involving Jamaica’s ‘Reggae Boys’.

Above all, this book honours the importance of family values, self-determination, inspiration, self- belief and collaboration with one another.
