What’s your story
My passion for visual storytelling was fueled by my life where I was brought up in an informal settlement Baba dogo, Nairobi Kenya. In 2014, I trained basic in Film making and Photography at Kyouth Media free training for the youth and in 2016, I was privileged to participate in the Slum Film Festival and with other participants we came up with a film project, JIHUSISHE, aimed at sensitizing youths on importance of their involvement in politics. This opened a major door for me in my career as I landed a scholarship at ADMI to pursue a Diploma in Film & TV Production. This was totally a new experience to me and I did not hesitate to share the skills with the youth and kids from my area as a give back project. At the end of my course at ADMI, I was placed at Covenant Television Network for my Internship, where I got employed as a producer and camera operator for both live and pre-recorded TV programs for 2 years till March this year, but I continue with my journey as freelancer hoping to tell world best stories as I search for future opportunities to express my creativity.\
