WRITER • PHOTOGRAPHER
I have almost 20 years experience as a freelance photographer and writer. I also teach writing and photography at the college level, speak and lecture on writing, photography and publishing, teach workshops, and take on assignments for print and electronic publications as a writer, photographer—or both.
I'm the son of Haitian exiles and grew up in Mexico City without extended family. I write realistic fiction that is informed by my own experiences as a photojournalist. A recurring theme in my writing is how major political decisions or outside forces affect the lives of individuals who have little power to alter their destinies yet manage to mantain hope and prevail.
