Henry's Favorite BDPA Memory: "I never got to go to Disney World as a kid but I went for the very first time representing the Cleveland Chapter at a BDPA Technology Conference. I felt like a kid again and very proud to be around other African Americans in Technology.”

Henry's Favorite Scripture: "The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favor to the learned; but time and chance happen to them all." Ecclesiastes 9:11
