Bio
I am a professional, holder of a Master's Degree in LINGUISTICS and (research) with specialization in Translation and interpreting from many perspectives. My Master's degree Dissertation explored the possibilities and doabilities of Mathematics in African languages (Fulani-Wolof-Sereer). It received lots of positive reactions among which a $3000 Grant from CDSSRA (council for the Development of Research In Africa) based in Dakar.
My Postgraduate Diploma (DEA Diplome d'Etudes Approfondies)' dissertation subject was a critical study of Geroges Mounin's work on Translation.
I did translate many works including books like JOURNEY TO THE LORD OF POWER OF IBN AL ARABI: A SUFI MANUAL OF RETREAT into FRENCH "VOYAGE VERS LE MAITRE DE LA PUISSANCE"; MASLAQ'UL HUDAA LIL MURIID AT TIJAANI from Arabic but mainly Wolof into French : GUIDE DU DISCIPLE TIJANI ASPIRANT A LA PERFECTION from Cheikh Ibrahima Sall. This book did receive at that time many attention and was presented in many Important shows in France.
Among them let us not forget the translation of "SECRET SCIENCE," "THE STELLAR MAN," AND "THE SCIENCE OF LOVE" ALL BY JOHN BAINES into French ; ; ETC.
I did numerous Interpreting, simultaneous, whispered+ (in conferences) and much informal works.
With Geneva Worldwide I was mainly involved in interpreting in ARABIC, FULANI, WOLOF for ACS or the administration for Children Services and at times with IMA (Institute for Industrial Medecine).
BBW inc, is a new creation though I had the idea for long time. It capitalizes my whole experience, skills and drive along with that of many other talents to be used as needed before attaining a more sustainable approach.
I am involved in other areas including Politics or to be more precise Highpolitics and Peaceful Protest seeking seriously the emergence of a Better World as the Spiritual World and knowledge want it for our own betterment as Species. From there come also my brotherly pressing need to BUILD BRIDGES in many ways including TRANSLATION AND INTERPRETING, the ARTS, AND AFFILIATION to organizations pursuing similar or identical aims.
I AM A DIVORCED FATHER OF TWO BOYS: ABRAHAM 14 AND JOSEF 13.
I live in NY City and travel frequently in BOSTON, MA DAYTON OH and Washington DC among many other US cities.
I AM A STUDENT OF MYSTICAL CHRISTIANITY I.E. THE HERMETICISM and seek what sought some well-known Names in bloody quest.
