1. Where did you grow up?

I was born in Jamaica, close to the town of Ocho Rios on the north coast.

2. What is your favorite verse, book or story in the Bible? Why?

The story of Joseph.

From my early years as a Christian believer, this story resonated with me, perhaps because I was 17 when I was converted, which was about Joseph’s age when his troubles really began.

3. What is your favorite movie? Why?

“Gandhi.”

I tend to like biopics of great events or persons, and “Gandhi” was one of the best.

4. Who are three people you admire?

Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King Jr. and Eric Henry (my father)

5. What is one little-known fact about you?

I’m an excellent baker, especially of Jamaican cakes and pastries.
