About me

Gender MALE
Location Miami, United States
Introduction I am an author and journalist who focuses on Haiti, the Great Lakes Region of Africa, Mexico, Guatemala and occasionally further afield in Africa, the Americas and Europe. Hopefully, that means being of some use in the struggle of economically and socially disadvantaged people to lead more just and decent lives. Photo © Hilary Wallis
