He holds certificates in conflict transformation and dialogue facilitation from the Glencree Centre for Peace and Reconciliation out of Dublin, Ireland and from the Center for Justice and Peacebuilding of Eastern Mennonite University. Since 2007, he has been exclusively engaged in activities related to fostering peace and reconciliation. He is also on LinkedIn.

“I became engaged in peacebuilding as I noticed the recurring cycles of violence in Haiti and wanted to help in breaking those cycles and reconcile relationships between Haitians.”
