On 27 November 2013, I accepted the call to stand up and represent the people of the Roseau South Constituency in Dominica’s upcoming general election. I am a ‘man of the people,’ and will take it upon myself to ensure that the people of the constituency are empowered and will see “better” days.
I was born in Roseau and was raised by my paternal grandparents in very humble beginnings. I sold produce in the local markets and did odd jobs from a very early age to help provide for myself and my family. This economic hardship, compounded with the emotional pain of not having the direct presence of my parents in my life served as an inspiration for me to strive towards academic success.
I attended the Roseau Boys School, the Newtown Primary School and the St Luke’s Primary School before moving on to the Dominica Community High School. Following graduation I attended the Dominica State College, and embarked on a study of economics, geography and sociology.
I worked as a teacher at the Grand Bay Secondary School before moving overseas to further my education. Throughout my academic career I have received numerous academic awards, and also benefited from a UWI scholarship for indigenous people. I went on to graduate from the Hugh Wooding Law School, the University of the West Indies, University of Central Florida and the Keller Graduate School of Business. Today, I am an economist and attorney at law in private practice.
I am a devout Christian who finds joy in helping others and in making meaningful differences in their lives. I am driven by the basic Christian values of love for one another and the spirit of hard work and particularly concerned about the weak and marginalized. My legal practice has provided me with the opportunity to provide significant pro bono legal services to the less fortunate. As a proud Kalinago man, I am also committed to the upliftment of the Kalinago people.
Outside of my professional interests, I am an avid reader and writer. I have written a regular column for the Sun Newspaper and is a regular commentator on social issues on local radio.
Plans for Constituency:
