I was born in Aruba but spent my formative years in Dominica. I migrated to the UK where I completed my education. I worked in the pharmaceutical industry as a research scientist and was Head of Department of Pharmacokinetics, leading a group of prominent scientists for many years before taking on the role of Head of Global Outsourcing. This post enabled me to set up my own company, B H & M G Consultants Ltd with my wife, an Educator, provides consultancy in our respective fields. In semi-retirement I am Chair of WISE Social Care & Education Project, an Afro-Caribbean Charity, which provides day care services for the elderly community within the London Borough of Brent. Working with DASSSA enables me to support the educational development of young people in Dominican where my own educational development began.
