Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I was born and raised in Nairobi, Kenya. I went to a STEM based school with the hope that one day I would be a doctor. That didn't go as planned, not because I wasn't doing well, but because I was doing pretty good but never felt the sense of satisfaction I hoped I would feel when I did it. I found my mind wandering and my heart longing for other things that I decided to branch out while I was in the school studying and training to be a doctor. I found myself immensely enjoying media clubs and all the promotion that followed it which led me into deciding to change my path to become a digital media director and marketer.  I came to America to pursue that dream by myself at the age of 17 and I am glad I did take that chance because I have never regretted doing this.


Interesting Factoid

I've been hiking in the mountains and the woods with nothing but a compass and a map for navigation. I am a lover of adrenaline based activities even though I fear dying from them.
