Jean Olivier is an avid traveler who has recently completed a 9-month tour throughout Northeast to Southeast Africa over land. He is a first generation Haitian-American, born and raised in Brooklyn New York.

He is also an Engineer by profession who have been fortunate to work and manage onstage alongside President Obama (Headed the debut 2008 Inauguration), Alicia Keys, David Chapelle, Roy Ayers, Stevie Wonder, etc. During Jean’s off time he spends it mentoring youth, shooting photography, collecting records, modifying electronics or learning a new language for his next destination.

He is looking forward to completing the rest of Africa within the next few years as well as releasing his memoir of his journey. Stay tuned as his adventures have inspired others to take the leap and explore the motherland from the aspect of local and not a tourist.
