Executive Director of the Haitian Cultural Foundation; board member of Le Musée d'Art Haïtien. My area of expertise includes social advocacy and political analysis. Since 1988, I have been an avid art collector and specialist on Haitian culture with academic and intellectual collaborative work on the subject of Haitian art and Vodou (Lectures, seminars, documentary film, curatorial work and events...). In 2003, I started servicing journalists and have since worked, at times intensively, with international medias and professionals as a fixer or local producer.
