Born at St. Boniface on 30 September 1945, he volunteered as a facilitator in St. Lucia, Dominica, St. Kitts, St. Vincent and Antigua, arranging courses in Conflict Resolution Through The Arts. He led the organization to collect books and school supplies for Caribbean children which resulted in the founding of a library in St. Lucia. He also became a founding member of Friends of Africa Relief and Development Agency Canada Inc. and was instrumental in the establishing of a school for Girl Child Mothers who survived the civil war in Sierra Leone.
