What is there to be said about me? Well, let’s find out! I am Haitian American, father of two beautiful biracial children, and a husband to the most remarkable woman I have ever met. I was born and partly raised in Queens, New York. I have spent most of my career working with children and young adults, ranging from ages 2–23. One of the best things that I have learned throughout my career is the importance of connection. Forming therapeutic relationships with my clients and their providers has been very rewarding.
Passion For Art
From as early as I can remember, art has been a medium, a voice to express everything that was going on in my life. My passion for art not only exists in my heart but also resides in my soul. I fill my artistic cup by focusing on beauty surrounds me. I’m driven by the need to create stories that are relatable and informative to the reader.
