I have a Ph.D. in Politics and my M.Sc. and B.A. degrees were in the multi-disciplinary field of International Development Studies (economics, politics, sociology, history, environmental sciences, and the humanities) and Anthropology (cultural and biological). I am a researcher, analyst, and former university lecturer. I am also the executive director of an entrepreneurial private enterprise involved in innovative sustainable development in the tropics. My career has allowed me to develop each of these areas to a professional level of study. I have lectured to undergraduates and postgraduates on a wide range of subjects, including business administration, statistics, research methods, sociology, politics, and anthropology. I also have a serious interest in music and philosophy.
