Structure & Empathy

I grew up absorbing cultures, model making, and drawing. As a designer, facilitator and strategist, I work with organisations, communities and specialists.

I’m the founder of Nairobi Design, a consultancy and community that organises Nairobi Design Week, Kenya's annual design festival.

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.
