Yes, I am Jamaican, and from JAMAICA - born and raised in Westmoreland!
And yes, I currently reside here in Montego Bay - in a residential community called Bogue Village.
I have lived in Jamaica all my life. If I am not here it is only for a short while, for business or vacation.

With Bachelors and Masters Degrees in Business and Management at Northern Caribbean University (NCU) and Bradford University (UK) respectively, a Diploma in Software Engineering at CIT, now HCIT, a lifetime of community leadership roles, several other personal development and professional accreditation, coupled with my over 20 plus multi-industry years of leadership experience, I was afforded the awesome opportunity to positively impact persons in ways I would have never imagined growing up as a country boy.
But, to be brutally honest with you. I also love my country, I really do.
There is oh so much about this blessed little rock that astounds me everyday:
And so, with my native and in-depth knowledge of Jamaica along with ongoing professional industry certification (See Recent Team Jamaica Certificate Below), I created this website to share what I call... the uniqueness of Jamaica with the world.
I've also written two sought after book publications, related to my country, The Jamaica Insider Guide and 101 Intriguing facts about Jamaica, you can find them both at Amazon.
Today, the website continues to, not only serve several hundred thousands of persons in their information serch per month, we are also in the top 1% of all websites online!
At Dec. 28, 2021, Netcraft.com indicates that they explore 1.3 billion websites of which 182,000,000 (182 million) are active.
But even with just the active sites, with an Alexa.com ranking of under 1,000,000 (actually 601,000 at Dec. 28. 21), this website is easily in the top 1% (at 0.3%) astounding!
We also get amazing reviews, offline, social and directly on the website. You can find some of the latest ones here.
I however, sincerely owe a lot to a company called SBI.
They gave me the inspiration and proved to me that I could do it - I could take this passion for my country and create a successful website.
I never hesitate to share this amazing story with my site visitors. In fact, I created a short report report that I shared exactly how I did it.
I am confident that you will find the information here very helpful in your research of our beautiful island.
And by the way, if there is anything you need my help with, please don't hesitate to contact me.
Thanks again for your time and for visiting my site. And please, stay in touch with me by subscribing to my free newsletter.
P.S. If you appreciate my efforts, please consider buying me a coffee here ☕. Thanks!
