I'm a Kenyan TV and Movie Director, Video Editor, Script Writer and Producer. I currently reside in Nairobi, Kenya but spend nearly half my time in Bristol, the UK, where I'm expanding my network and connecting with more filmmakers through the Afrika Eye Film Festival platform based in Bristol as well as the Bristol Filmmakers group.

Grip- Kenya Grips Co. LTD
My introduction to the industry was through interning as a female Grip in Kenya Grips Co. LTD. Though a highly male-dominated department of the industry, it was through working here that I met most of the people that would change my life and inspire the route of my career forever. I got to work on the Film sets for movies like MALOONED and TV commercials with international Filmmakers and seasoned personel alike.
East African School Of Media Studies
With very few options for local Film Schools in 2006, the East African School Of Media Studies offered me the best introduction that I could find and that suited me through a diploma course in TV/Video Production. I came top of the class after the 2 year course and my eyes were opened to what I wanted to focus on and achieve.
State House Girls' High School
Before it all began, I went to this High School, which was to later prove to be the beginning of my identifying my dreams.
