I am a young bubbly Kenyan with an unwavering love for music. My love for music and the arts has brought me on a journey towards understanding music and its intricacies. I am a freelance writer. I currently reside in Nairobi, Kenya.

My interest for music bore my blog, Jazzsymphonic, (, which essentially is tagged on taking readers on an exceptional music journey. What drives me is my unbridled passion to highlight the rich diversity in the Kenyan Musical culture: specifically Jazz and classical music.

Through my writing, I hope that people embrace the diversity we have in the music genres and are offered a feel of self-appreciation on the kind of music churned by the various artists in the scene.
