Comments:

After leaving Moniteau I attended Manhattanville College in New York graduating with a major in Management and International Studies. I also attended Harvard University and University of Lancaster specializing in Management and International Marketing.

After College I went to work at the United Nations where I worked closely with the Under Secretary General.

In 1989 I moved to Atlanta where I became the President of the Atlanta Council for International Cooperation (ACIC) appointed by US Senator Sam Nunn, Georgia Governor Zell Miller and Atlanta Mayor Maynard Jackson who co-chaired the organization's Board.

In 1995 I became President of Indusa Global, an information systems firm located in Atlanta, Georgia with additional offices in Montego Bay, Jamaica, Nassau, Bahamas and Calcutta, India. Indusa Global specializes in solutions for Safe Tourism and National Security. As a company we offer solutions for E-Passports, National Id's and Border Control. While setting up Indusa Global's presence in Jamaica I also founded the Caribbean Institute of Technology, a higher education institution that has since graduated over 10,000 students specializing in Information Technology. In 2008, Florida Institute of Technology (Florida Tech) named one of its labs after Indusa Global.

Some of my other achievements have included representing several Fortune 500 companies in their bid to establish an off-shore IT presence in India. I helped develop a National IT Plan for the Government of St. Lucia. I have been fortunate to be a speaker at the G15 Summit attended by 17 Heads of State on how Technology can be leveraged for sustainable development. I was a speaker at the National Press Club in Washington, DC and at the Annual Conference of the US Chamber of Commerce in Washington, DC as well as spoke at the United Nations World Tourism Conference in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and at the Microsoft Government Leaders Forum in Carthagena, Colombia and Cape Town, South Africa.

For my involvement in the international diplomatic community I was honored by the Vice President of Peru, Dr. Carlos Garcia and was also nominated for the "Pride of India" award for my role in negotiating with the office of the U.S. Trade Representative on behalf of India.

In 2009 I embarked on a new adventure when I became a partner in Farcor Studios, an independent Studio in Hollywood that currently has 2 shows on US TV, 3 more in production and 2 Movies in production. The Studio focuses on Animation, Comedy Sitcoms and Feature Films. I am really excited about this new venture. Thats about it for what I have been up to since 1983.
