International Business, Public Policy, and Strategic Communications
Hi, I’m Antoine, an International Business and Public Policy professional by day; geography, history, and culture trivia nerd by night, and Ping-Pong and Karaoke king on the weekends. Welcome to my website.
I enjoy traveling, learning about different cultures, and making meaningful, long-lasting connections. I am here to help you analyze public policy, keep abreast of international business, and make sense of our interconnected world — all while having fun at the same time. Check out my blog entitled “International Ties” and explore my photos, portfolio, and more.
Recently, I completed an executive program at Georgetown University and Florida International University, studying in Washington, DC (where I’m currently based) and Miami, Florida. I now have an Executive Certificate in International Business and Public Policy from both universities. 🙂
What Others are Saying:
“Antoine has shown more follow through than any delegate in any of the eight or nine delegations I have led to the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. He made friends everywhere we went and was an excellent cultural ambassador. He has shown the personality and skills to build understanding and connection across culture” — Mike D., Manager of the U.S. Delegation to Morocco and Egypt
“Thanks so much for serving as one of our breakout facilitators for our very first Leading the Way Unconference as part of the Summer of Public Diplomacy. I heard terrific reviews of your session from our attendees. I know they appreciated your guidance, insights, and wisdom as you tackled a core focus area for the future of our profession.” –Katherine B., CEO of Global Ties, the United States’ oldest citizen diplomacy network
Fun fact: Born on Flag Day (June 14th) in the Nations Capital)
I was born in Washington, DC and raised in Washington, DC; Prince George’s County and Montgomery County, Maryland. I spent most of my childhood summers in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and southern New Jersey. Going to four different elementary schools, I learned to adapt to different environments early on and easily.
My father served in the United States Air Force, living and working in Okinawa, Japan and training in places such as Europe and Africa. My mother worked in nursing before suffering from chronic migraines.
After graduating high school, I had a brief stint in California, where I lived outside of San Diego and Los Angeles before returning to the Washington, DC area and starting college.
Use your smile to change the world; don’t let the world change your smile.
