Nairobi, Kenya

I'm a Kenyan-born and Africa-focused writer and entrepreneur passionate about a new African narrative. Less lions, diamonds and war - more innovation, investment and inspiration.

I run Nendo - a strategy & storytelling consultancy working with great companies across the globe to create value in the age of the connected African consumer. This sees us work in strategy, communications, media and technology.

We train, publish and consult worldwide and you can email me or the team at

As an author I've published East Africa's first trend report - the 2014/2015 Nendo Social Media Trend Report. The free report features 15 trends and predictions around instant messaging, Social TV and digital African government.

I've also published the A to Z of Kenyan Twitter - called "Africa's first digital dictionary" showcasing the quirks, characters and colloquialisms of a digital African society. It's a masterful multimedia project launching online with:

27 videos on YouTube (from A for #Aromat to Z for #ZeroChills)

A free downloadable e-book

A Slideshare

A Pinterest board with our 26 illustrations for your pinning pleasure

A downloadable mp3 file on Soundcloud

A great web experience that has all this and more
