Search "Desab, Haiti" on Google Maps and you'll find nothing. That's what originally peaked my interest in going to this small mountain village. Then, it became so much more. (full story: http://exploreinspired.com/...)
My aim was to explore a place that seemingly didn't exist and also to give a small but meaningful pre-Christmas gift in the form of 500 Clif Bars. It was December 14, 2016, and I boarded my flight to Haiti. One there, the story changed, and I began to realize just how dramatically climate change was affecting this region. Beyond the earthquake, beyond the hurricane, beyond the droughts, the climate was to blame for limiting the town's children's' educational opportunities.

I've been playing guitar, singing, and writing music since I was 11. This will always be a huge passion of mine and I still play and write, I just don't get into the studio to record often anymore. From time to time, you can expect new music from me! http://ronziomusic.com
