How have the arts impacted your life?
Arts have impacted me tremendously. For me it was music. As a kid I took drum lessons. I didn't go far with it but it was still a great experience for me. In middle school and high school I was in a singing group. I was the co-lead singer. We tried hard to be like New Edition but all of us had different agendas and couldn't get it together but again it was a great experience. I worshipped Hip Hop just like most kids these days but I loved music period. At one point I could tell you everything about every Hip Hop artist and producer. I wasn't a good rapper but I understood things behind the scenes a little bit. I worked for Uptown records at the point. Another great experience. With that experience a partner and I started a management company and label. It was sooo much work. It was hard getting that one big hit. But I wouldn't change that experience for anything in the world.
How beneficial do you feel the Arts are for children?
The arts are very beneficial for children because it lets them be creative. It brings out so much of their creativity. It gives them something to fall in love with. Something to use their time with. So many musicians don't know where they would be without music. So many artists don't know where they would be without art. Dancers, poets, etc. Every child should be exposed to some form of art if not all.

How has the share ride service impacted the private luxury car service?
I'm sure its impacted the industry a great deal but it hasn't impacted my business. I'm just a year old so I started after the share ride service. I don't feel the effects of the share ride business coming in and taking over any of my clientele. My clientele prefers private car/limo service.
How do you determine which vehicles to purchase or lease?
There aren't many limousine cars to choose from. Cadillacs, Mercedes Benz and Rolls Royce's are the main cars that are in most fleets. Those brands speak for themselves. I make sure all the vehicles are up to date and that's the main thing beside keeping them clean. A person doesn't want to pay to be chauffeured in an old vehicle.
How has Covid-19 impacted your business?
We could not have foreseen the impacts of a national pandemic like COVID-19. It's in these times that our entire team had to pivot. The BK Global Team updated our safety requirements for each driver.
