He also has interests in starting his own business, either in the entertainment industry, aerospace industry, or environmental technology industry, and his priority is setting up shop in Buffalo. This is in addition to his career interests, which include working as a financial analyst or an urban planner. His aim is to improve the quality of life for the citizens of Buffalo via better housing, better city living, or better employment opportunities.
