I AM GVG

A place to connect the visuals to the words that form the crazy that is my existence.

Yesterday in Italy for Milan Fashion Week, Haitian Italian designer Stella Jean showed her spring summer 2015 collection, with a simulcast live online stream. 

Utilizing Haitian folk art as both inspiration and graphic enhancement for her flawy designs, Stella blended the beauty of Haitian art and Italian craftsmanship in one beautiful collection.

The beauty of  children is their ability to learn, discover, and appreciate new things. Unbiased from the worlds views. 


We ask that you allow us to show you Haiti through children’s unbiased eyes. You should and can be skeptical, perceptive, critical, and engaged, but also be open, inquisitive, and welcoming. 


Come see Haiti through our lens and we’ll show you a place like no other.

Some of the Haiti Got it team working hard to iron out all the last minute details for next months inaugural Explorer trip. 

Don’t mind the TVs in the back.  We’re great at multitasking.

Everyone say hello to my beautiful new niece Auset. She gets her looks from her mama, her warrior spirit from her papa, and she’ll definitely get my cool kid swag.

Today has been a roller coaster. Literally. I was all the way done with it, until I got the above image, and message from my friend and amazing photographer @Ucwhateyec

That moment represents one of the best moments and years of my life. It was also the year where I was reminded it all works out in the end if you believe it will. 

On a related note, @Thecameraseesall I can’t put into words how much I appreciated you as a friend and brother for grabbing me by the arm and pulling me out when you saw me drowning that year. Who would have thought a ride to a junkyard could mean so much?! You’re truly a distinguished gentlemen. (Inside joke)

Truly and forever #EnjoyTheSeconds

@HaitiGotit would like to congratulate Ms. Carolyn Desert, who was crowned Miss Haiti 2014 on Sunday in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.

Desert, a freelance writer and the owner of a Mexican restaurant in the upscale Petionville district of Port-au-Prince, is known for supporting artists and helping impoverished children. She was a favorite from the beginning. Her wide smile earned her a “most photogenic” award, and her eloquent response during the competition’s question-and-answer segment made the crowd of more than 400 people erupt in applause.

Desert will participate in the Miss World competition in London in December. She also will represent the country on trips sponsored by the country’s tourism ministry.

Last night I had the pleasure of witnessing the strong menswear debut of The Beckemberg Cricket Club by @dreubeckemberg. As the name suggest, the line inspired by the English bat and ball game cricket, was a well crafted and curated selection of well tailored suits, dress shirts, reimagined Sportwear with interesting plays on texture, patterns, and muted tones. 

I haven’t been this excited by a menswear debut since I first discovered and wrote about Ovadia and sons back in 2011. 

Happy to see Mr. Beckemberg was able to keep to his vision and bring his designs to fruition. I look forward to seeing what he does next.
