Later he was also trained as a Hair Stylist. His interests and abilities extended to auto mechanics, as well as many aspects of building renovations. We must not omit his known love, passion and expertise of cooking for his family and friends.

He expressed a novel aspect of his personality with his collections of watches, unique, antique and especially those of heirloom family watches, plus his boxes and boxes and boxes of many sizes, styles and novel configurations.

His keen sense of humor, unquenchable curiosity enabled him to readily converse with many people on many topics.
