Why did you choose Mazda?
Honestly, it was not my first choice. I was going for a Civic coupe, but with a baby on the way, I wanted a sedan and a friend of mine convinced me to at tleast check out Mazda. I'll admit that I was pleasantly surprised. I was going to walk away though if I couldn't get the white on black combo.....

Do you have any hobbies?
Love basketball, although I can no longer play like I use to. Back surgery has limited my playing ability. I follow many different sports, but I just can't play alot of them like I use to. The import scene is high on my list as well.
What's a typical Friday/ Saturday night for you?
Well, since I'm married and have a 3 month old daughter, I'm usually in bed by 11:00pm. I'll admit, there is a part of me that still misses going out with the boyz to Warehouse, IT nightclub, Jet nightclub, the Mix, MFN, etc..... but every now and then I make it a point to hit up Rack n' Wack on Queen St. downtown.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Hopefully by that time I'll have my 2nd child and sell my condo and move into a town house. Not sure if I'll still be with Citrix.... but who knows with job security these days.
How would you rate the following of importance to you?
(finance, friends, education, family, job security)
3. job security
Describe yourself in 3 words.
joker, polite, and pogi... hahaha (it's a Filipino thing)
Name 3 goals you have yet to achieve.
- owning a house (townhouse will do)
- 3some (yes, with 2 girls.. haha), yet I doubt that will happen at this point
- slam dunk a basketball on regulation height
Any last shout outz?
Everything happens for a reason. I never regret anything I do, but i will deal with the consequences. What ever does not kill you can only make you stronger. I completely believe in karma!!!!!
