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 with card and mobile payments as well as courier deliveries fully integrated, 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, we sold the talent management segment of the business to Radio Africa Group to focus on developing our regional agency operations, which we later integrated into the OMD - Omnicom Network.
I now advocate for youth empowerment in Africa. 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"
