Nairobi, Kenya

I am a versatile and creative communications professional who has tackled and excelled at different communications roles and formats.

Currently, I am a Senior Political Affairs Writer at The Star Newspaper in Nairobi, Kenya.

My 11-year career in communications - 7 of which have been in active political and current affairs journalism - merges a journalistic focus on strategic message delivery and problem-solving with a journalist’s persistence and storytelling excellence.

I have also been involved in corporate branding, communication and marketing with proven results in the education and behavior change communication sectors.

I have extensively used online platforms for both corporate and journalistic communication over the 11 years.

As a writer, I am involved in op-ed and commentary writing as well as editing for individuals and corporates.

Other than that, I am a blogger, poet and creative writer.
