In this 21st century I realize it was before time.
Me being a Rastafarian activist, musician, farmer, business owner, and a Freedom Fighter. In 1985 I came to St. Maarten. to live with my grandfather.

I also had a musical recording and wrote a book, which I will be reading for Black History Month. It is a book of inspiration, motivation, and upliftment.

I am the owner of Freedom Fighters Ital Shack and the founder of the Freedom Fighters Rastafari Cultural and Musical Foundation which was established in 1992.

It is an honor that we can contribute to help make St. Maarten a more lovely place for us all to live in. Despite the culture, traditions, race, color, and gender, we all are ONE.
