You're right - the background is not good! For this kind of shot, you need to find a background that doesn't intrude: this one is too messy.
For shots of people in their environment, the background is important, but this is a portrait of the person, not of his life. The background doesn't say anything about him.
Find a neutral or plain background, or alter the flash balance to make the background darker.

Hi shydallah

Great picture, just love day to day portraits.

I hope uploaded a mod where I duplicated and changed to b&w. Changed blend to overlay the darken the edge and lightened the centre. This gives a hard look to the image and draws the eye to the subject. Hope you like it.
