I live in Pretoria, South Africa, where I work as a film writer. What I love about my job is I get to work with people from all over the world. I also enjoy working solo, behind the scenes and working with ideas. When meeting me for the first time, some people find me intimidating, but after they get to know me better they say I’m friendly, versatile, independent and unassuming. I’m deeply curious about African history and I’m always seeking to learn more about it. Maybe this is because I’ve spent half my life in Kenya and the other half in South Africa. For fun, I play the piano and basketball, do cross-stitch, hike and read. I also like going to events and striking up conversations with strangers. I find people to be like great works of art. The closer you look, the more you learn and discover.

That’s not to say there aren’t weirdos out there. I’ve learned to spot them speedily and make a quick getaway.
