was born and brought up in Guyana where I was based until 1987. As Indo-Guyanese Caribbean now living in the UK, I consider myself part of the Caribbean Diaspora located in Europe and North America. My religious heritages include Islam, Hinduism and Christianity – Caribbean style.
I have lived, studied and worked in Guyana, Jamaica, Grenada, Curacao, Switzerland, and the Netherlands. And over the last eight years I have been living and working in Birmingham, United Kingdom. Like so many other members of the Caribbean Diaspora, “home” has a strange ring as it continues to be "elsewhere" for me!
In the Caribbean I have been involved in a variety of ministries, including community development work in Guyana and Grenada and ecumenical theological education in Guyana, Grenada and Curacao.
My academic qualifications include a BA degree in theology (University of the West Indies, Mona, Jamaica), an MA in theology and Caribbean Literature (University of the West Indies, Mona, Jamaica) and a PhD in Theology, Ecumenism and Missiology (University of Utrecht).
I am an avid cricketer, who gets excited over Bob Marley, big screens and good films, authentic Rum Punch [that is, Grenadian Style], good Caribbean Curry (largely creolised) and, of course the elusive Anancy
