Introduction

Civil Innovation, Social Entrepreneur, Disaster Response, Creativity in Education and Technologies for Human Development expert with over 20 years of field experience on strategy creation and project development for international organizations, government agencies, academic institutions, private corporations and non-profit organizations in Asia, USA, Latin America and the Caribbean. 

Featured by CNN as one of 20 Latin American Leaders of the Internet, honoured as Digital Vision Fellow at Stanford University and Social Entrepreneur in Residence at the National University of Singapore, recipient of Google Developing World Scholarship and Bill and Melinda Gates TED Global Scholarship and acknowledged by NMC at MIT as one of Six Emerging Leaders, Scholars and Entrepreneurs.

I have been fortunate to work and learn from people, communities and processes from remote Caribbean mountain villages to the depths of the Amazon Basin, from challenged settlements on the snowcapped summits of the Andes and underprivileged urban youth to thriving modern cities of Asia as well as the very specific particular environment of jails and disaster stricken developed and developing world populations.

My work includes design of education and innovation strategies, crowdfunding and crowdsourcing platforms, regional research and assessment of technologies in public sector, hackathons, workshops, conferences, events and development of e-government, e-commerce and citizen engagement platforms.

Tasty, excellent food and great ambiance. A nice place to share with friends or for formal and professional dinner with great food and good customer service. As in most places in Port-au-Prince, parking may be a bit hard on popular nights.

Awesome park. The main reason we chose our apartment was to be close to it. It has two separate playground areas for kids of different age, one of which subdivides in two for older ages. A huge grass area for picnic, sitting, playing, a modest sport arena in the form of amphitheater, a small separate oval track with soft inclinations where kids can skate, scoot or play with remote controlled vehicles, and yet another separate area for playing with dogs and pets. Easy access from both Mirabeau and Versailles and a nice stone trail around it, including benches on the highest part of the hill that provide a lovely full view of the park.

If you're looking for simple, quick buys for toys or party presents, you may find it here. Mostly inexpensive imports and novelty items. Puzzles, bubbles, the singing wall fish, costumes, some remote controlled items, plastic sport items, etc. All at pretty low prices, in particular for the neighbourhood and compared to other more upscale stores in the area.
