I grew up absorbing cultures, model making, and drawing. I'm a designer, facilitator and creative strategist who provides structure and empathy.
I’m the founder of Nairobi Design Week, an annual festival, community and design studio that showcases design locally and globally.
I host the Afrika Design podcast, a creative tour of Africa, nominated 'Best Arts Podcast' in the 2022 APVA Awards.
On the board of World Design Weeks, I work to improve diversity, member experience and data management.
Teams I've started have thrived at Reckitt, WSUP, Sun King and Busara.
Grant collaborations include the British Council, Stimuleringsfonds and Goethe Institute and other institutions.
My work includes products, services, local and global creative campaigns, new technologies, toys, games, consumer electronics, furniture, sanitation, music videos, events and experiences.
I like to have conversations.
