Humanist, Artist and Poet - that’s me!

My painting was exhibited at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Porter Butts Gallery in the 67Th Annual Student Art Exhibition. Also, my poem on the Waters of Wisconsin was published in the Spring 2003 Wisconsin Academy Review.

I was also a semi-finalist in the 5th Annual Volvo for life Awards in 2007.

YES, I am an activist and working for the development of Africa through my country, Sierra Leone. Think about it; POLITICS shapes society and good people should come into it to make a difference. I tried in July 2011 to become the Leader of the Sierra Leone People's Party (SLPP) with the hope of becoming President of Sierra Leone. I lost.


That said, I am a lover of beautiful and simple things, especially in nature. Come, walk with me along the lakes and rivers, through the jungle and down the valleys. Aimlessly strolling in the woods is my forte. Cooking my uniquely concocted specialities from a vast culinary imagination is another. My family craves these specialities. It is just another part of my creative endeavor.

My greatest peeve is the Cell phone. How I wished it has not been invented. This useful invention hurts my ears. Am serious! I hate putting things in my ears.

But, email or chat? You got it - am game - any time. Now drop me an email and lets connect.
