EXTRA-ORDINARY, MY NORMAL

Collaboration

I help forge collaborations across cultural, national, and continental divides: The Comparative Heritage project connects academics, scholars, researchers, and practitioners with diverse training and disciplinary orientations/backgrounds and, definitely, from at least three different continents–Africa, Europe, North America to engage the topical subject of “heritage” through transdisciplinary methodologies (visit the Comparative Heritage website);The VALOR Group brings humanitarian workers and social-cultural change agents from different walks of life to solve common problems in society (visit The VALOR Group website).

Volunteer and Support

I serve my community whenever the need arises: I have chaired committees, joined activists for social and economic justice and/or provided needed leverage in negotiations.

Partnerships

As a technology aficionado, I believe the 21st century provides immeasurable opportunities for development and progress in society, which is why I welcome new partners and thinkers who are both daring and passionate about not just social changes across communities but importantly, those who genuinely A.C.T. in the behalf of real and lasting transformations.
