Hertz Nazaire

Community Advocate

1042 Broad Street - Loft 407
Bridgeport, Connecticut, United States

Hertz Nazaire Hertz was born in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti on October 2, 1973 where he was raised by friends and family of his mother Yverose Nazaire who had left Haiti to find work in the United States. Nazaire is a sickle cell patient and a Haiti artist. Nazaire struggled with the pain and challenges of Sickle Cell Disease which caused his vision to fail over the years. The frustration of slowly going blind has encouraged him to appreciate the process of painting with a deeper purpose. Nazaire focuses on creating design and space on his website dedicated to improving the image of Haiti on the web and providing a new community through the use of a new social network platform where Haitians can share their arts and culture with the world. Nazaire also continues to work in health advocacy as a speaker for Sickle Cell Disease Pain awareness. His Sickle Cell Series continues to be a significant feature in medical books and other media publications related to the subjects of Sickle Cell Disease or Chronic Pain.
