Born in Haiti and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Don Clitandre is at the core a writer and artist. He began writing poetry in Creole shortly after migrating to the states to reunite with his parents. While in High School he discovered he had dyslexia, and because he did not have the necessary support to overcome this challenge, he gave up on his dream of becoming a writer. However, throughout the years, he remembered the English teacher that told him to not give up. In the past few years, Clitandre has been dedicating time to focus on his writing and art.
Clitandre is a student of life and its mysteries. He learns from his own experiences and by being a keen observer in how people behave. He is an avid traveler and finds most of his inspiration in life while backpacking. Some of his favorite places to backpack are in Mexico City, Guatemala, and Belize.
Clitandre’s professional expertise is in the field of training and development of Managers. He is the proud father of two daughters and a son. He currently resides in Dallas, Texas.
