From Nairobi but home is Nanyuki, happy working on the land or retreating to the bush for a night or two. I’m proud of my country and my heritage and my passion is to make my country proud of me. I see and hear things differently, I can anticipate the action, feel how it should be shown – the rest is about giving the best to the work, always looking to grow or be more bold with the content. Some of my artistic inspiration comes from international content but my eye, my interpretation, is through African eyes with an African vision.
