I was born and raised in Nairobi, Kenya and attended Strathmore School. I have a college degree in Computer Science from the Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology where I graduated in November of 2009.

My professional career as a computer engineer began at Zeeduka, one of Kenya's first e-commerce companies, back in 2009. After developing Zeeduka into a end-to-end e-commerce engine fully integrated with card and mobile payments as well as countrywide courier deliveries, I joined Mo Sound Events and was part of the team that got Safaricom to discover the power of Social Media.

On 13th November 2011, I made the decision to become an entrepreneur. I left my job at Mo Sound, pooled together some capital and co-founded Trinc Media.

My co-founders and I grew Trinc Media from a four-man team incubated at the Nailab Accelerator, into a full-service digital agency with presence in five countries across East Africa. In 2013, Trinc was acquired by Radio Africa Group.

I'm now a passionate advocate for the empowerment of Africa through innovation and technology. My focus is on developing skills — as a faculty member at The International School of Advertising — as well as mentoring upcoming entrepreneurs, both as an advisor to The Safaricom Spark Fund, and as the special projects lead at The Wafula Corporation.

I admire the late Nelson Mandela and his conviction to overcome any challenge by echoing his wise words that "It always seems impossible until it is done"
