I'm Winton, I'm a Public Health Professional working on better ways to educate people on their health. I'm a husband and father to a soon-to-be 3 year old son and soon-to-be born baby girl. I was born in Jamaica, W.I. and grew up in New Jersey. My first real job brought me to NY and I've been living in Brooklyn for over 11 years.
I'm really interested in using web technologies and social media to educate communities about maintaining a healthy lifestyles. In the past I've worked in cancer research, helped develop assessment and measurement tools for cancer treatment and worked on projects that use Bluetooth technology to change smoking behavior.
My goals include Ph.D. study in health technologies and establishing Simian, LLC, a Public Health web development company, as a top organization for creative ideas around health communication.
I'm a budget techie, meaning my budget (and time) prevent me from being totally absorbed by the Matrix. I enjoy video games, movies of all kinds, music of all kinds (though Country can be a little difficult to get down to), I study Chinese Kung Fu Wu Su, and is very active in the Food Justice Movement through the Brooklyn Food Coalition.
