Wow Where do I start?.. well for my likes, Motorcycles, Bowling (Yeah, I roll 300's) and Pool are my sports. I am a father of 2 girls, who are completetly the reason why I breathe.. My girls have inspired me to be the best in life at all things, not from the moment they were born, but from the moment they were concieved. Being a dad is the quintessential favorite part of my life. I also have a facination with rescue and law enforcement. I was hired as a full-time fire rescuer the same week I was hired as a on call (not even part-time) radio personality. Its obvious that I chose radio, and it indeed has been good to me, moreso than I am to it. Radio broadcasting has always been my passion and was ultimately birthed into me by my late father who worked in radio for almost 50 years. So I guess you can say I got it honestly. I can truly say that I am blessed beyond measure to have such a great carreer, which allows me to experience so much the average person will probably never do or see. I am truly grateful to God for this dream now reality lifestyle that I am blessed to have...To Him be The Glory...

"I’m just trying to do my part in the whole taking R&B back to what it is. I think a lot of times as R&B artists we are so consumed with trying to make sure our records are competitive to the hip-hop world [that] we are missing out on what makes an R&B record: the substance, the melody and the vocal performance. These women need somebody that’s going to cater to them and treat them right through songs, and that’s my mission", Q Parker stated.
