1. St. Lucia Coming Together

    During one of our fundraising awareness walks that we organized, some of the children were spending their time hugging and drinking water.  Just goes to show the Diabetes walk influenced more than just awareness to the issue, but a coming together as well.

  2. St. Lucia Girls Circle

    I have organized and facilitated an empowerment group for girls between the ages of 9-16 called Girls Circle.  The Circle provides a support system for the girls with role models and peers alike.  One of the sessions during the 10 week Relationship building segment was traditional peace tea ceremony.  The girls could not talk and were asked to only communicate through eye contact while they shared tea and biscuits. 

  3. St. Kitts and Nevis Violet Petty After School

    I love how each child's personality comes out when they are consciously trying to pose for a photo.

  4. St. Kitts and Nevis Violet Petty After School

    This is a picture of a few fourth graders who I worked with for two years.  I feel the lighting and the closeness of the photo enhances their expressions and beauty succinctly. 

  5. St. Lucia Coal Pots for Care

    In the course of my year long after school programme here in St. Lucia, I held a three day workshop on how to make coal pots.  It included 15 children ages 7-16 and involved both girls and boys.  All of the children took to it very fast.  They were given lessons on how to use the coal pots following. 

  6. St. Vincent and the Grenadines A Vincentian Calypsonian

    In 2009, my wife and I were involved in a project at our post in Georgetown, St Vincent, to honor the service of community leaders around the area.  As part of this project we made short videos about each one of them to memorialize them for future generations.  This video is of a local calypsonian, Gao (Godwin Augustus Olliviere), who lives in a village down the road from us.  I hope you enjoy his song and the interview!

  7. St. Lucia Boys in St. Lucia

    We met these boys while hiking in remote Belle Vue, St. Lucia.  They were helping their father who was a coconut farmer. While much of the island has access to North American amenities such as cable tv, Costco-style super markets, and wifi, these boys were the essence of natural innocence.

  8. St. Lucia Cooling out at NSDC

    Staff, employees and trainees alike viewed 17 and 18 December 2002 at the National Skills Development Center with great anticipation.  It was our annual Open Day, a chance to showcase our new-found skills and abilities to the entire community.  Months of preparation went into everything from each class’s display, to the layout of the presentation rooms, to the sequence of events for the two days.  We were bolstered in our efforts just a few days before the event when we heard that the Governo...

  9. St. Vincent and the Grenadines Fly away

    This is a picture of me jumping off a pier at Villa Beach in St. Vincent. As you can see, this is a beautiful place to watch the sunset over the Caribbean and let your mind sort of "fly away" for a while.
