I was born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti at a time whenthere was tremendous political and economic instability. When I was 18-months-old, my mother, a nurse, moved to the United States to pursue a better life for our family. A year and a half later, my father, my three older siblings and I were reunited with her in New York City.
We lived in the East Flatbush section of Brooklyn and I attended Catholic school. During the summers I would often take the bus to the public library where I would read, eat lunch, and then go home and play. I loved playing sports and developed a passion for baseball, basketball and track and field. To this day, I still play pick-up basketball games throughout the city.
