About the Author

Fritznel D. Octave was born and raised in Bombardopolis, a commune located about eight miles South of Môle Saint-Nicolas on Haiti's northwestern peninsula. Ironically, Môle Saint-Nicolas, was the part of the island where Christopher Columbus first landed in December 1492. It was also the subject of a diplomatic dispute, the 1891 Môle Saint-Nicolas affair, when United States President Harrison attempted to force the lease of Môle Saint-Nicolas to the United States for a naval base, but Haiti refused. A veteran journalist specializing in social and environmental reporting, Octave spent years at the heart of Haitian events contributing to several media outlets. He holds a BS in Communications from the Faculté des Sciences Humaines of the State University (Haiti). He attended Caribbean Institute of Media and Communication at the University of West Indies (Kingston, Jamaica) and Green College at the University of Oxford (England) for certification studies in Journalism. After almost two decades of experience in business management in the United States, Octave decided to further his education by pursuing an MBA with a concentration in International Business at the Florida Atlantic University (Boca Raton, Florida). Among his most important writings include his academic publications: Du Droit et de la Déontologie des Médias Haitiens (Rights and Ethics of Haitian Media), a thesis presented at the State University of Haiti; and Being an Environmental and Social Reporter in Haiti, an essay presented at Green College, University of Oxford, UK.Octave currently lives in Kissimmee, Florida, with his wife and two children. He is a successful entrepreneur and leader in the insurance industry.
