I am an urban planner turned student of real estate development at Columbia University.
I spent the past three years working for Architecture for Humanity in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Prior to that I worked in London, Hamburg, Stuttgart, New York and the Twin Cities.
I started this blog to document and share my experiences of living and working in Haiti, but it has evolved into something like a travel guide based on my own trips and excursions. I like to explore all sorts of places, whether remote without electricity and running water or right there where I live. I write about the stuff I like to discover about these places – the architecture, art, history, food…
I also like to share the great off the beaten track places I’ve stayed and the cheaper or safer ways of getting around. I hope that by doing this I help send some business their way. Because truly the best way for a country like Haiti to grow out of poverty is through small business that sustainable takes advantage of the beauty, culture and history the country has to offer!
