About

About Me

In the 15+ years I’ve spent in the tech field as an academic, practitioner and social entrepreneur, I've mentored thousands, founded companies, started movements and created empowering opportunities for the next generation of tech innovators in Guyana...

My Backstory

I never set out on this journey with a charted course of being at the helm of companies, I was led here by what I knew I could offer with the passion of solving problems and a conviction to make a difference.

I've come to accept the label of "social techpreneur" (technology-focused social entrepreneur). My past experiences have led me to take up a personal mission to create enabling environments for innovation and tech ecosystem growth in Guyana. I have spent thirteen years as a lecturer and mentor to students of the Department of Computer Science at the University of Guyana, during which time I founded a social-impact led tech community which, to date, has evolved into a for-profit conversational AI tech company (V75 Inc.) with a non-profit counterpart (NeXus Hub Inc.) focused on youth development and tech ecosystem growth in Guyana.
