I am a proud Afro-Guyanese. Based on the sacrifices of my ancestors, I feel compelled to fulfill their dreams to be free, productive humans and work towards building a better world where all living things are respected; a world free of racism and bigotry; a world in which small multi-ethnic nations like Guyana can lead the world in modeling a better and more harmonious way of life and existence.
Now that I am retired, I have reconnected with my other passions, storytelling, and poetry. I have written and published a few books of poetry (Kneeling for Justice, Anthology of Poetry Posters by Pablo) and two memoirs (My Poor Dad and Behcet’s in Black) about my life growing up in Guyana and as a student and professional trying to carve out a better life overseas.
Additionally, I perform as a spoken-word artist at open mic events around Atlanta and in New York, and I host a bi-weekly podcast, Pablo’s Kreolese Korner, to celebrate and showcase Creole culture and talent through music, poetry, stories, and edutainment.
