It was a fascinating experience, and I vividly remember Tupac visiting our office regularly following a police incident in Oakland. I engaged in conversations with Tupac and his entourage, referred to as the "posse" at the time. After my legal career, I started an attorney support service and desktop publishing small business. I became an accomplished speaker in Toastmasters. I later turned my attention back to my passion for music, particularly Jazz. It was during this period that I made an extraordinary discovery, 9 of my immediate relatives shared birthdays with legendary Jazz musicians. This revelation left me profoundly happy, inspired, prompting me to develop a play and to bring people together around the idea of using birthdays as a source of happiness, connection, and inspiration.
