Bio:
Fritz Dufour is a Haitian-born American researcher and writer. He is a trained Cross Cultural Health and Communication Expert and holds a MBA from Long Island University (Brooklyn, New York) and a DESS from the School of Medicine of Université de Montréal (Montréal, Canada). He’s also a linguist with emphasis on sociolinguistics and translation (English-French). His interest revolves around the role played by economy and health in the shaping of industrialized societies.

He’s a big fan of history, philosophy, and sociology. His literary works include, redaction and translation of business, health, scientific, and technological articles. He is a prolific author.

When he is not writing, he likes to discover new places (virtually, through television, or in reality). In his spare time, he likes to take refuge in music to allow his mind to travel, which, thus, enable him to connect and reconcile both music and the places he fantasizes about, and, therefore, experience continuously the relationship between music and the surrounding environment, as Johann Wolfgang von Goethe put it: "Music is liquid architecture; Architecture is frozen music."

He strongly believes in Eudemonism or the constant pursuit of happiness, which, he believes, should be an integral part of all human beings. To him, your happiness is something to cherish and safeguard, and should never depend on nor be controlled by your peers. At the same time, he thinks that the latter should never be blamed for the choices you make, especially the calculated and educated ones.
