Because of different work schedules I very seldomly get to work with one of my friends Gino.
Gino is one of those happy-go-lucky types that always lights up a room with his presence.
He always has fun stories to tell too.

For example, this one time he had an upcoming audition for the lead role in The Lion King.
To get over his fear of singing in public he decided to sing on Yonge St.
(For those of you who don't know, Yonge St. is a very busy street in downtown Toronto.)
With his luck he gets seen by another co-worker and since then we all make fun of him for singing on the streets for cash.

Anyhow, I was asked to take some pictures of Gino for an upcoming promo today.
I was glad to oblige - And here he is.

"Yeah; word!"

Gino is also helping me with my ebonics.

He says I'm really close to being a 'Hip soul brotha'
Or was that 'Funk soul brotha'?
