Name -  Maurice Brown/Reese

What is something you learned in the last week?  I learned how to burn a CD.  I burned "Got To Give It Up" by Marvin Gaye onto a CD.  I know its only one song but I am looking forward to burning more of my favorite hits. 

What’s the one thing you admire most about yourself?  That I love supporting and encouraging my family and friends through the good and bad.  When there is a family/friend graduating, I am there applauding; when there is family member getting married, I am there celebrating.  Where there is one suffering a loss, I am there comforting.   When there is a loved one celebrating a birthday, I am there dancing, dancing and dancing!


What is your passion?   I Love throwing events especially surprise birthday parties.  I was thrilled to throw my mom a surprise 60th Birthday party as well as my aunt a surprise 50th BD party.  But most of all, I was filled with so much joy to give my Grandpa Rev. James L. Brown  and my Grandma Agnes Brown with a 85th birthday party.  It was my Grandma first birthday party ever and she enjoyed every minute of it.  My grandpa passed away at 88 and grandma passed away at 89; thus, I am glad I followed my heart to show them how I much I loved and appreciated them.

Seen anything weird lately?  I saw around 25 people jogging with just red underwear on and Santa hats. 


Which of the four seasons do you most love? Why?  I love FALL because I enjoy not being too cold while rocking my favorite tweed suits, turtlenecks, blazers and hats. 


What is your perfect pizza?  My perfect pizza is a cheese pizza with thick crust - simple and delicious. 


If you had an extra $100 to spend on yourself every week, what would you do?   Shop at my favorite store - Zara's. 


Which shoe do you put on first?  My right shoe. 


What’s something most people don’t know about you?   That I love shopping at consignment shops. 


Whats business, service, or product should we know about ?    NoGrease Barbershop owned by twins, Damian and Jermaine Johnson.  It is not your ordinary barbershop; people of many races, creed and color can be seen any day receiving a professional cut in a friendly and professional environment.  NoGrease Inc. has received several awards including Best Barbershop awarded by Steve Harvey Hoodie Awards and honored by NAACP with an Empowerment award.

Have you ever had something happen to you that you thought was bad but it turned out to be for the best? What was it?   After 2 years of going to grad school full-time, working a full-time and part-time job, I was rushed to the hospital a week before graduation.  My heart was beating too fast; the doctor had to give me a shot in order for my heart to beat at a normal rate.  I was afraid, scared and nervous especially when he told me that my heart will have to stop for 2 seconds after receiving shot in order to readjust to a regular heart beat.  It was the best thing that happen because my heart did stop for 2 seconds, readjusted and I am still here today and never had any more problems with my heart.  Life is real short so enjoy every moment, don't sweat the small stuff. LIVE, LOVE and LAUGH. 


Who is your favorite author?   King David, Solomon, Moses, etc. through the voice of Jesus.  I love the Book of Psalms because it is a collection of songs and poetry that lifts the name of my Savior in praises. 


What body part do you wash first?   My neck


What songs are included on the soundtrack to your life?   Lifetime by Maxwell, Cherish the Day by Sade, You Are Not Alone by Michael Jackson, I Will Always Love You by Whitney Houston, God has Smile on Me by Rev. James Cleveland - I have more....but will stop here. 

How difficult is it for you to forgive someone who refuses to apologize?   Not difficult at all.   You have to forgive people in order to live a happy and prosperous life.   


When are you at your best?   When under pressure. 


What sound do you love?   Relaxing sounds of Asian music and soothing jazz. 


What part of your body could use a little lotion?   My hands


Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing?   I am doing what I believe in - I loved math as a young kid and enjoyed my work as an accountant and college instructor. 


Where is Waldo?  I don't know where is Waldo because I don't know who Waldo is? lol

What final thoughts would you like to share?  I love my family! I just started modeling and love it! I am a fan of vintage clothing.  My home is decorated in an Asian and contemporary style.  GQ is my favorite magazine.  I still get tickled when I have to show my ID to prove my age - thanks mom and dad for the good genes.  My dream vacation is Hawaii.
