I began my career as a journalist and wrote breaking news and features for The Palm Beach Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, and (New Orleans) Times Picayune. My short fiction has been published in the journals The Caribbean Writer, carte blanche, Tupelo Quarterly, Border Crossing, and Obsidian: Literature in the African Diaspora, as well as in the anthology So Spoke the Earth. My critical essay, “Finding Identity in the Space Between Haiti and the U.S.,” appeared in Representations of Internarrative Identity (Palgrave MacMillan, 2015). I taught writing at Goddard College, Broward College, Florida Career College, and Antioch College, where I established the Writing Institute and wrote expository and creative writing into the curriculum. As an administrator, I've held positions in enrollment management, fundraising, and marketing communications at Antioch College, Goddard College, Nova Southeastern University, and Miami Dade College. I'm currently the associate vice president for strategic and diversity initiatives at Earlham College.
