I am a film director, TV and web content creator and video editor. I have worked in the Kenyan film and television industry for over 13 years, starting out as a grip, then moving on to video editing where I worked on music videos, films and TV content as well as working as a Promo Producer for a couple of years.
I later moved into directing and have made content for TV including movies, drama series and talk shows, as well as films for cinema release.
My latest project was the web series Janjaruka, which was produced by our small independent Nairobi-based company, Flick 7 Pictures.

Grip- Kenya Grips Co. LTD
My introduction to the industry was when I interned at Kenya Grips Co. LTD for 9 months. 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 professional film sets for movies like MALOONED and TV commercials with international filmmakers and seasoned personnel alike.
